Syrian official: 10 killed in university attack

DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - A Syrian government official says 10 people have been killed and 20 wounded in a mortar attack against Damascus University.

The official says the mortar rounds struck the university's architecture department in the central Baramkeh district on Thursday. He spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to give official statements.

The government-run Al-Ikhbariya TV station says the mortar shells struck the cafeteria and showed footage of tables and chairs turned upside down, shattered glass and blood on the floor.
