BEIRUT -- Activists say dozens of people have been killed or wounded in an air raid on a gas station near the capital Damascus.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees say the airstrike occurred Wednesday in the eastern Damascus suburb of Mleiha.

An amateur video posted online showed several charred bodies as well as a bearded dead man who was torn to pieces.

It also showed several vehicles on fire as black smoke billowed from the Nawras Gas Station.

The videos appeared genuine and corresponded to other AP reporting on the events depicted.
