Twin suicide bombs shake Syrian capital, kill 44

DAMASCUS, Syria – Two car bombers blew themselves up Friday outside the heavily guarded compounds of Syria’s intelligence agencies, killing at least 44 people and wounding dozens more in a brazen attack on the powerful security directorates, authorities said.
State-run TV said the al-Qaida terrorist network was possibly to blame for the first suicide car bombings in the nine-month uprising against authoritarian President Bashar Assad.

I hate what the Syrian government is doing to its civilians. The civilians were simply protesting and then the Syrian government decides its going to use its military to attack the protesters! That is sickening. In my opinion, the Syrian government is the true terrorists here! :mad:
