Raw: IS claims Damascus bombing, killing 20

The Islamic State (IS) claimed responsibility for the suicide bombing at the Police Officers’ Club in Damascus’ northern district of Masken Barzeh earlier on Tuesday.

The group said the suicide bomber infiltrated by his explosive-laden vehicle the Police Officers’ Club, killing about 20 and injuring 40 others.

A watchdog group said the explosion is part of the series of explosions the IS has threatened to undertake against the capital Damascus.
