Two explosions went off in Damascus, and gunfire between the rebel fighters and regime forces lasted for over three hours. Rebels in the country detonated two car bombs at President Bashar al-Assad’s army headquarters, killing at least five people, including a reporter for Iranian television."The staggering numbers are horrific but the world also needs to know that there is increasing sexual torture and more children being tortured," a spokeswoman for the Local Coordination Committees of Syria told reporters.
