DAMASCUS , July 2 (Xinhua) -- At least 20 people were killed and 30 others were wounded when three suicide car bombing attacks hit Syrian capital Damascus on Sunday, pro-government Ekhbaria TV reported.

The residents of Damascus woke up Sunday morning to three loud explosions, which later turned out to be carried out by three suicide bombers.

The cars caught attention from security personnel who later hunted them down. Two cars exploded near the airport road at the entrance of Damascus before reaching their targets inside the city, while the third escaped and exploded at the Ghadir roundabout near the Tahrir Square in eastern Damascus.

Most of the victims were reported in the third blast near the Tahrir Square, where 56 cars were damaged as well as the facades of three residential buildings, a military source told Xinhua.

The source cheap under armour shoes , speaking on condition of anonymity, said the terrorists intended to detonate the cars inside crowded areas in the capital, as people were back to work after a week-long holiday of Eid al-Fitr.

Meanwhile, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, a monitor group, said that 18 people were killed and 15 others were wounded in the explosions under armour shoes outlet , among which 10 were killed in the Tahrir Square blast.

The bombings happened at a time when intense battles have been raging in rebel-held areas in eastern Damascus between the Syrian army and the Failaq al-Rahman group, which has an alliance with the al-Qaida-linked Nusra Front.

A day earlier, activists accused the Syrian army of carrying out an attack with chlorine gas in the Ayn Tarma area in eastern Damascus, a claim flatly denied by the Syrian army, which said in a statement that the rebels were lying to cover their losses.

Failaq al-Rahman renewed the accusation on Sunday, saying the Syrian army launched a second attack with chlorine gas within 24 hours.

Rami Abdul-Rahman under armour shoes on sale , head of Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said fighting has been raging in Jobar and Ayn Tarma, both neighborhoods in the Eastern Ghouta region east of Damascus.

Battles in eastern Damascus have intensified since last month, when the Syrian army started an operation to retake Ayn Tarma and Jobar from the rebels, who have been excluded from the de-escalation zones' deal last May.

The deal brought in relative calm, but the al-Qaida-linked groups were excluded. And the Syrian army wanted to expand the security perimeters around the capital by attempting to dislodge the militants from those areas.

TOKYO, Feb. 9 (Xinhua) -- Concerns are rife about a global economic slowdown as evidenced by an overnight equities rout on major U.S. and European bourses, sending the U.S. dollar tumbling versus other currencies, including the Japanese yen.

Tokyo-based analysts indicating there will likely be more headwinds ahead.

Market here closed sharply lower Tuesday as a swathe of issues were dumped in the face of a rising yen against the greenback, with the Nikkei Stock Average plunging 5.40 percent to a three-week closing low, as market players offloaded riskier assets like stocks in favor of safe haves like the yen.

Analysts said that market consternation was growing based on a raft of economic data suggesting that global economic growth is slowing.

Despite what traders have descried as a temporary uptick in crude oil prices owing to the U.S. dollar's slump proportional to the affordability of oil Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 3 Mids Black , the glut will likely continue as surplus continues to outstrip demand and prices drop again when the dollar recovers.

"What we've seen in the last 24 hours or so is a global market react to concerns that, while a slowdown in emerging economies has been widely been factored in, recent macroeconomic data from the U.S. has, collectively, contributed to an overall 'sour indicator' that the world's largest economy may be heading toward a recession," Hisao Katayama Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 2 Mids Grey Blue , a senior equity analyst at Nomura Securities Co., told Xinhua.

"The recent jobs data from the U.S., coupled with a number of key indices charting worrying courses, are impacting global markets, with Japan being no different as we've seen today in the sell-off and the yen's rise," Katayama said.

Specifically Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 2 Father to Son Mids Pacific Europa , he was referring to not just global markets' recent equities rout, with the S&P 500 dropping 9.3 percent for the year and 1.4 percent overnight, but the Stoxx Europe 600 Banks Index, for example, which has posted losses for six straight weeks, marking the longest down spell since the global financial crisis in 2008 Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 1 MVP Mids Black White Gold , but other global barometers of longer term economic woes.

He highlighted the fact that the Baltic Dry Index, which tracks the trade of shipping commodities and is widely regarded as a litmus test for the health of the global economy, had hit all-time lows at the end of last year and declined to date throughout 2016.

"These are the kind of fundamentals that are the most worrisome as such indicators were harbingers of the global financial crisis in 2008 and we're beginning to see some very similar patterns developing, with the situation exacerbated by a continued downtrend in oil prices and the limited impact of central bank's tendencies toward further monetary easing," Katayama explained.

In terms of the central bank's moves, the 10-year Japanese government bond turned negative for the first time ever Tuesday afternoon Men's Under Armour UA Stephen Curry 1 Mids Grey Black , as concerns about the health of the global economy reached fever pitch on markets here.
