Explosion Rocks Damascus Hotel

Explosives hit a hotel used by the ever-shrinking force of United Nations monitors in Damascus on Wednesday. The Free Syrian Army has claimed responsibility, allegedly targeting a meeting of top officials. Syrian state TV said the blast was caused by a bomb planted in a car parked at the hotel and at least three people had been injured, but none of them were U.N. monitors.
