DAMASCUS — A suicide bomber killed at least four people in a Christian area of the Syrian capital on Thursday as aid groups said they cannot keep pace with the ever-growing suffering.

State media said the bomber struck near a church belonging to an order of the Maronite Church, killing four people, a toll confirmed by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

“A terrorist suicide bombing… in Damascus has left four people dead and several others wounded,” state television reported said.

The Britain-based rights watchdog said in “a suicide bomber detonated his explosives near the Mariamite church. According to preliminary reports, four people were killed and several others wounded.”
