Activists and state media say a bomb has exploded in the Syrian capital, killing at least five people.

The blast appears to have targeted a restaurant, according to photographs released Tuesday by the state-run news agency SANA.

SANA and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group said the blast occurred late Monday in the Damascus neighborhood of Qaboun.

Qaboun has been the site of anti-government protests since the uprising against President Bashar Assad's regime began in March 2011.

The tightly-controlled Syrian capital has been hit by a wave of explosions, mostly targeting security agencies.
