    Syria says twin suicide bombings in Damascus kill 40

    At least 40 people have been killed in two suicide car bombings outside security service facilities in Syria's capital, Damascus, officials say.

    State TV earlier said suspected al-Qaeda militants had targeted bases of the General Security Directorate and another agency in the Kafr Sousa area.

    But opposition activists said the government had staged the attacks to influence an Arab League observer team. The observers are part of a plan to end the deadly crackdown on dissent. The UN says more than 5,000 people have been killed and thousands more detained since anti-government protests erupted in March.

    The monitors are tasked with overseeing the government's compliance with an agreement that should see an end to violence by both sides, troops withdrawn from the streets and all detained protesters released.

    But human rights and opposition activists said the killings continued on Friday, with security forces shooting dead at least 12 civilians.
    'Very mysterious'. The two explosions happened within minutes of each other on Friday morning.

    The two explosions are unprecedented. Many people were surprised that within 20 minutes, the government had ascertained that the blasts were the results of al-Qaeda attacks.

    It is hard to tell what the reaction of the Syrian government will be, after days of major assaults by the security forces in the Jabal al-Zawiya area of northern Idlib province. Hundreds of people have been killed there since the government signed a protocol with the Arab League, allowing for the deployment of an observer mission.

    Many are also asking why the blasts happened a day after the observers' advance party arrived. The opposition and protesters, who are once again taking to the streets, blame the government, saying it is attempting to persuade the observers that there are terrorists operating inside the country.

    Not long afterwards, State TV said two attacks had been "carried about by suicide bombers driving vehicles packed with explosives against bases of state security [General Security Directorate] and another branch of the security services" in the upmarket Kfar Sousa district, south-west of the city centre

    Red: It sounds as if Al Qaeda is being defended here.

    Blackbold:The answer is simple, those observers may be are carrying some intel chips for facilitation of the locating of hit targets needed by terrorists (This is my cheap assumption).

    ...And, it may be very cheap, indeed!

    ...If you have been following the Arab Spring, you'll notice that Al Qaeda is benefiting in some ways, and even support for the group is been displayed publicly in some quarters in those countries.
