Syrian Baath Party in Damascus ‘hit by rockets’
At least two rocket-propelled grenades have hit a building of Syria’s governing Baath Party in the capital Damascus, residents and activists say.
After initial reports of smoke rising from the building, there were no obvious signs of damage on Sunday.
If confirmed, it would be the first such attack reported inside the capital since the uprising began in March.
President Bashar al-Assad has vowed to continue his crackdown on opposition groups despite foreign condemnation.
An Arab League deadline for Syria to end its crackdown on protesters passed overnight with no sign of violence abating.
At least 14 people were killed on Saturday, according to the UK-based opposition news service, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.
Four of those killed were government intelligence agents whose car was ambushed in Hama by gunmen believed to be army defectors, it said.
Foreign journalists are unable to move around Syria freely, making it difficult to verify reports.
Since the unrest began, some 3,500 people have been killed, according to a UN estimate.
