Syria war: Rocket 'hits Damascus trade fair', Syrian media say

A rocket has struck close to the entrance of a trade fair in the Syrian capital, Damascus, Syrian media say.


The Damascus International Fair is being held for the first time since the Syrian conflict broke out in 2011.

Syrian TV said the rocket had caused casualties. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said five people had died.

The fair, which has another 10 days to run, had been a key business event before the Syrian conflict broke out.
