    The Free Syrian Army has claimed responsibility for a bombing in central Damascus which has wounded at least three people. The group told Al Jazeera it was targeting senior officers at Syria's Army Staff headquarters. The attack was followed by a series of smaller explosions ripping through the city. The news has raised safety concerns for United Nations monitors based at a hotel close to the site of the blasts.
