"A terrorist blows himself up with an explosive belt inside one of the restaurants in the Rabweh area in Damascus causing a number of deaths and injuries," state news agency SANA reported.

The restaurant blast in the west of the city came less than two hours after the first suicide attack at a central courthouse in the Hamadiyeh neighbourhood.

The attacks come as Syria marks the sixth anniversary of its brutal conflict, which began with anti-government protests in March 2011 and has killed more than 320,000 people.
