Syria: Blast Reportedly Hits Red Crescent Headquarters

At least one person was killed Dec. 6 in an explosion outside the Damascus headquarters of the Syrian Arab Red Crescent, Reuters reported, citing Syrian state television. Syrian media blamed the explosion, which reportedly was an improvised explosive device in a car, on "terrorists from al Qaeda." With Syrian rebels closing in on Damascus, the al Assad clan appears to be accelerating diplomatic efforts to negotiate a safe exit for the family and guarantee the security of Syria's Alawite minority.
