Syria's rebel Free Syrian Army (FSA) claimed responsibility for a deadly Damascus attack on Wednesday that killed two top regime officials, the defence minister and the president's brother-in-law.

The command of the FSA “announces the good news of the outstanding operation this morning that targeted the National Security headquarters and the killing” of the officials “responsible for barbaric massacres,” it said in a statement. – Sapa-AFP
