The BBC says international peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has met Syria's embattled president Bashar al-Assad.
Brahimi, who represents the UN and the Arab League, is in Damascus to press both the government and the rebels to observe a truce over the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha. On Friday, he met Foreign Minister Walid Muallem and opposition leaders.
Syrian state media report that several people were killed in an explosion in a Christian area of Damascus on Sunday. A car bomb apparently targeted a police station in the Bab Touma district of the old city.
