The bus was hit by an explosion from an improvised device hidden near a wall on Marioutiya street at around 1815 (1615 GMT), the ministry said.

About two hours later the bus could be seen behind a police cordon with one of its sides badly damaged and the windows blown out, a Reuters reporter said.

Dozens of police and firefighters were at the scene, on a narrow sidestreet close to the ring road.

Police are investigating, the ministry said.
