DAMASCUS : A double suicide bomb attack hit a police station in Syria`s capital Damascus on Monday, state media said, with a monitor saying at least 11 people were killed.

Damascus has been largely insulated from the worst of the violence during the country`s brutal six-year war, but several bomb attacks have shaken the city.

Syria`s interior ministry said two suicide bombers had blown themselves up at the police station in the southern district of Midan, leading to the "deaths of a number of civilians and a number of policemen".

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a Britain-based monitor of the war, said at least 11 people were killed in the attack, among them six police officers.
