Syrian authorities have arrested a person they say carried out a bomb attack last week that killed four senior security officials.

Iran’s Fars news agency reported that the suspect worked at the security headquarters in Damascus where the bombing took place. The agency quoted a Syrian parliament member as saying the suspect had been hired by Syria’s enemies.

The attack killed the defence minister, a general, the brother-in-law of President Bashar al-Assad and Syria’s intelligence chief. Earlier, a security source said the bomber was a bodyguard entrusted with protecting the closest members of Assad’s circle. Syrian state television said a suicide bomber was responsible.
