Suicide bombers kill 27 in double strike on Damascus
Sunday 18 March 2012
Twin suicide car bombs struck intelligence and security buildings in Damascus yesterday, killing at least 27 people and wounding 140, according to state media.
The government blamed opposition "terrorists", but the opposition suspect loyalist forces of planning the bombings to tarnish the uprising. US intelligence officials have pointed to al-Qa'ida in Iraq as the likely culprit behind previous bombings. Al-Qai'da's leader has called for the removal of Syria's president, Bashar al-Assad.
