A handout picture released by the official Syrian News Agency shows cars burning after a powerful car bomb exploded near the headquarters of Syria's ruling Baath party in the centre of Damascus.

Thursday's blast sent thick smoke billowing across the capital's skyline and all roads in the area were quickly sealed off.
