Twin suicide car bombings shake Damascus, killing more than 40 

MORE than 40 people were killed after two massive bombs tore through Syria’s capital yesterday.

Bloodied corpses littered streets in Damascus seconds after the double suicide car blasts, which were blamed on al-Qaeda. State TV reported the casualties were mostly soldiers and more than 150 people hurt.

Nidal Hamidi, 34, who lives nearby, said: “The explosions were frightful.”

The blasts went off within minutes of each other outside the state security building and an intelligence office for Syrian spies yesterday morning.

They are the first suicide bombings in the capital since the start of the uprising against President Bashar Assad in March, which has seen 5,000 killed in violence.

Yesterday’s carnage followed a series of bomb attacks across Baghdad in neighbouring Iraq 24 hours earlier – which also appeared to bear the hallmark of al-Qaeda.

Assad’s Shia Muslim-led regime insisted the uprising is the work of terrorists and armed gangs backed by foreign powers trying to topple the state. But there were claims the bombs were part of a regime conspiracy to point the finger at Sunni al-Qaeda plotters to influence an Arab League observer team.

Opposition figure Omar Idilbi said: “The explosions were very mysterious because they happened in heavily-guarded areas that are difficult to penetrate by car.

“This is an attempt to make the Arab League and international public opinion believe Syria is being subjected to acts of terrorism by members of al-Qaeda.”mirror.co.uk
