At least 20 people were killed in Syria's capital Damascus on Wednesday, as twin car bombs struck the district of Jaramana, activists say.

The SANA news agency has stated that "terrorists" were behind the blasts in Jaramana.

Television pictures have shown firemen hosing down the charred wrecks of two vehicles, BBC says. Several buildings also appeared to have been damaged.

The blasts come the day after British-based Syrian activists said government fighter planes had killed "tens of people" when they bombed an olive factory in the north-west of the country.

Tens of thousands of people have died since an uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011, according to UN and activist estimates.
