There has been an attempted attack on the US embassy in Damascus overnight. From what I could tell, it was to be a two part attack with a car bomb attempting to breach security followed by a bomb laden van however the car failed to breach security and the van never detonated. The van was loaded with what looked like about five or six propane tanks with pipe bombs strapped to them. All attackers were killed by Syrian security forces.
