Mortar attack by anti-Assad rebels on Syrian university campus in Damascus kills 10
Thursday 28 March 2013
Mortar bombs slammed into a cafeteria at Damascus University today, killing at least 10 people and wounding 20 in the deadliest in a string of such attacks on President Bashar al-Assad’s seat of power.
Rebels began firing shells at the capital this year, and the strikes have become increasingly common in recent weeks as rebels clash with government troops in the city.
At one point, the official news agency Sana said 15 people were killed, but later the news agency put the death toll at 10. There was no immediate claim of responsibility.
