DAMASCUS, Syria -- Syria's state-run media say gunmen have detonated a bomb in the country's south, hitting a bus with visiting Jordanian writers and wounding two of them.
The SANA news agency says Jordanian writers Issa Shattat and Jihad Obeidat were lightly wounded in Thursday's attack in the southern province of Daraa. The bus was returning to Jordan.

The delegation from Jordanian Writers Syndicate was in Syria for days and met with President Bashar Assad. SANA did not say whether the Jordanian delegation was intentionally targeted.
Roadside bomb attacks are common in Syria's nearly three-year conflict that has killed more than 120,000 people.
