Nicosia: Syria`s Muslim Brotherhood claimed
responsibility on Saturday for two suicide bombings in Damascus that
killed 44 people a day earlier.
"One of our victorious Sunni brigades was able to target
the state security building in Kfar Suseh in the heart of the
Omayyad capital Damascus in a successful operation carried out
by four of our kamikazes drawn from the best of our glorious
men, leaving many dead and wounded from the ranks of the Assad
gangs," it said on its official website.
The claim contradicted accusations by the regime of
President Bashar al-Assad that the bombings, which also
wounded 166 people, were the work of al Qaeda. The opposition
Syrian National Council said that the regime had carried them out.
