CAPITAL IN FLAMES: Another bomb hits the Syrian capital for the second day in a row; this amateur video captures the scene just minutes after a blast near the Four Seasons Hotel in Damascus. SANA reported that 14 people were killed and tens were injured in a “terrorist attack” in the Marja area.
Opposition activists accused the Syrian regime of orchestrating the attack in an attempt to block a UN investigation committee on chemical weapons use in Syria. The Syrian government, however, said “the terrorist attack is a reaction by the terrorists after the army’s advances and victories over them.” Video courtesy of Nabid al-Asimat.
