About two and a half hours ago, gunmen opened fire on Syrian guards near the US Embassy in Damscus, Syria's capital city. There were also two suicide car bomb attempts. Firsthand accounts are sketchy at the moment, but it seems that one car did explode, and the other did not. Personell are presently trying disarm the explosives in the second car.
Several, if not all, of the attackers were killed, as were a small number of Syrian gaurds. No Americans were killed, and little or no damage was done to the embassy.
