Syria says 44 Killed in Twin Bombings

(DP-News - agencies)

DAMASCUS- Syrian officials say twin suicide bombings in Damascus have killed at least 44 people and left at least 150 others injured. State television reports that two bombers used vehicles packed with explosives to attack a pair of state security facilities in the capital on Friday.

The state-run SANA news agency displayed graphic photos that it said showed victims of what it called “terrorist attacks.” The news agency also said Syrians had gathered in Damascus and several other cities to protest the bombings.
Witnesses reported hearing heavy gunfire after the explosions.



Syrian officials said al-Qaida militants may be responsible for the attacks. A deputy foreign minister told reporters the bombings are proof of the government's longtime claims that terrorists are behind much of the violence linked to opposition protests.
” All who stand behind these criminals in Syria and defend and support these crimes are considered responsible for the terrorist acts.”

The bombings have come on the heels of the arrival of an Arab League advance delegation that is setting up an observer mission in Syria. News reports say some delegation members visited the bombing sites.

Meanwhile, many foreign countries condemned Friday's bombings and said Syria must not allow the attacks to hamper the Arab League's monitoring mission. Iran and Lebanon also condemned the blasts.
