Syria: Central Bank attacked with grenades

The SANA agency says four policemen were hurt and the bank building was slightly damaged in attacks.



Damascus: Syria`s state news agency says assailants have fired rocket-propelled grenades at the Central Bank and a police patrol in the capital Damascus and detonated two bombs in the northwestern city of Idlib.

The SANA agency says four policemen were hurt and the bank building was slightly damaged in Monday`s attacks. An activist says 10 people were hurt in the explosions in Idlib.

State media blamed the attacks on "armed terrorists”, a term it uses to describe those trying to overthrow President Bashar Assad. A largely peaceful uprising began more than 13 months ago but turned into an insurgency under a regime crackdown.

The UN is trying to make a ceasefire stick, and a Norwegian general arrived in Syria on Sunday to take command of a team of truce observers.
