DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) — A bomb exploded Thursday near a bus carrying a group of Jordanian writers who met with senior Syrian government leaders on an official visit, wounding five of them, one of the delegates said.

The Syrian state news agency SANA said two Jordanians were wounded. But the Jordanians said five of them were wounded by the late afternoon explosion in Daraa province, 40 kilometers (25 miles) east of the Jordanian border.

“It was tumultuous. We heard a big boom and we were hit with shrapnel,” said Hussein Mutawee, one of the wounded writers.

He said the 20-member delegation from the Jordanian Writers Syndicate was in Syria for four days, meeting with top officials. They had plans to meet President Bashar Assad, but the government “told us the president was busy,” Mutawee said.

Mutawee accused the rebel Free Syrian Army of intentionally targeting his group. …

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights activist group reported fighting Thursday between rebels and government troops in the towns of Nabak and Deir Attiyeh, which are located along the highway between Qara and Yabroud.

The Observatory said the rebel forces were led by fighters from two al-Qaida-linked groups, Jabhat al-Nusra and the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant.
