Nov. 28 - At least 34 people are killed as two cars bombs explode in Damascus. Travis Brecher reports.
Two deadly blasts tore through eastern Damascus on Wednesday, killing at least 34 people and seriously wounding more than 80 others. The large explosions sent debris flying, crushing nearby cars in the district of Jaramana, home to many of Syria's Druze minority as well as Christians who have fled violence elsewhere. The two car bombs exploded shortly after 6.40 in the morning local time. An interior ministry source said 10 bags containing the remains of unidentified victims were taken from the scene of the blasts. Activists say more than 40,000 people have been killed since President Bashar al-Assad's crackdown on protests began.
