Huge Bombing in Damascus

WAPO:

A bomb tore through a traffic-clogged district of downtown Damascus on Tuesday, killing at least 13 people and wounding scores, according to Syrian state television.

It was the second attack to strike at the heart of President Bashar al-Assadís power base in as many days, underscoring his vulnerabilities as he battles a disparate but increasingly well-supplied rebel movement. Syrian Prime Minister Wael al-Halki narrowly escaped a car bombing that targeted his convoy Monday morning. At least nine people were reported killed in that blast. Opposition activists said the dead included at least two of Halkiís bodyguards and a driver in the convoy.

Here is video from the scene.

And we want to send more weapons.
