Justice building housed Islamic Religious Tribunal on Personal matters and a Criminal Court.
On Wednesday a suicide bomber attacked a courthouse in the centre of the Syrian capital, killing at-least 25 people & injuring others, the state media reported citing a Damascus police source.
Security forces had cordoned off that area & the roads leading to it were blocked as firefighters and ambulances rushed to the courthouse.
The courthouse contains both an religious tribunal charged with personal matters, as well as a criminal court.
The terrorist targeted civilians during a crowded period. The suicide bomber tried to enter & when the police tried to prevent him, he quickly rushed inside & blew himself up.
The bombing comes on the 6th anniversary of Syrian conflict, which began with anti-govt. demonstrations in March 2011.
Last Saturday, a twin bombing in the capital, Damascus killed 74 people.
