At least 60 killed as ISIS suicide bombers attacks Shiite shrine in Syria

The Islamic States group has claimed responsibilities for the bombing that killed at least 60 people, including 25 Shiite fighter and wounded dozens near Syria's holiest Shiite shrine outside the capital Damascus.

According to SANA news agency, the first blast was caused by a car bomb that went off at a bus station by a public transport garage near the Sayyida Zeinab shrine. Two suicide bombers then detonated their explosives belts as people began to gather at the scene of the first explosion.

Bodies were still being pulled from the wreckage,' a witness told state news channel Ikhbariyah.
The explosion tore a massive crater in the road and was so powerful that it scorched the facade of a six-storey building. See more photos below:
