    Syrian warplanes struck suburbs outside the capital city of Damascus on Monday, activists said, killing at least 60 people.  The attacks on the Zemalka neighborhood may indicate a shift in violence back toward the capital as forces loyal to dictator Bashar al-Assad continue to pummel citizens and rebels in the ongoing, 17-month feud.

A Syrian helicopter was fired on by rebels in Damascus earlier on Monday and crashed.
