News Brief

Syria accused Israel of trying to assassinate a Hamas man in Damascus. A member of the Islamic terrorist group, who was not immediately named, escaped a blast that tore through his car in the Syrian capital Monday. Syrian Interior Minister Ghazi Kanaan blamed the Mossad for the bomb, which reportedly was planted under the car seat and detonated shortly after the terrorist and his daughter parked and departed. An Israeli official declined comment on the charge, saying only that Syria should crack down on terrorist groups, as required by the international community.
