Syria regime officials killed in Damascus attack

A suicide bomber struck the National Security building in the Syrian capital Wednesday, killing the defense minister and President Bashar Assad’s brother-in-law - the harshest blow to the Syrian regime since the uprising began.

Syrian state-run TV says the blast came during a meeting of Cabinet ministers and senior security officials in Damascus, where four straight days of clashes pitting government troops against rebels have sent tensions soaring.
