Islamist group, Free Syrian Army claim Damascus attack

Two groups claimed responsibility for the explosion in Damascus on Wednesday that killed several top Syrian officials, including the defence minister and the president's brother-in-law.


Liwa al-Islam, an Islamist rebel group whose name means "The Brigade of Islam", said in a statement on its Facebook page that it "targeted the cell called the crisis control room in the capital of Damascus." (Reuters)
