Syria's Foreign Ministry has accused armed groups affiliated with the al-Qaeda network of being behind the massive explosion that killed more than 53 people in Damascus today, state media said.
The ministry's statement came in a letter addressing the UN, during which it charged that al-Qaeda linked groups in Syria were receiving support from regional and foreign countries, calling on the UN to shoulder its responsibilities toward combating terrorism.
