More than 60 people, including 25 Shi’ite fighters, have been killed in twin suicide bombings by Islamic State in a heavily guarded pro-government district of the Syrian capital where an important Shi’ite shrine is located, a monitor said to Reuters.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the casualties were expected to rise from the suicide attacks in a district in southern Damascus where Lebanese militant group Hezbollah and other Iraqi and Iranian militias have a strong presence.
