Gunmen apparently blew up a car outside the U.S. Embassy and exchanged fire with Syrian guards on Tuesday in a brazen attack on Damascus’ diplomatic neighborhood. Syrian security forces killed three of the attackers, the government said. The Interior Ministry, which is in charge of police, said a fourth assailant was wounded in what it called a “terrorist attack.”
Apparently, the group is an offshoot of Al-Qaida.
