Scores killed in Damascus as car bomb goes off

A car bomb exploded Nov. 29 in the crowded heart of Damascus, killing at least 64 people and wounding 135. The bomb went off near a military police office, and several other buildings were wrecked, witnesses said - the fourth bomb attack in the Syrian capital since August.

The Syrian government quickly blamed the underground fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood Organization, which is opposed to the regime of President Hafez Assad. But in Beirut, the Organization for the Liberation of Lebanon From Foreigners claimed responsibility for the blast. The organization, suspected of rightist leanings, has claimed involvement in recent bombings in Beirut, but never for action outside Lebanon.
