"At least two rocket-propelled grenades hit a building belonging to the ruling Baath party in Damascus on Sunday, residents said, in the first insurgent attack reported inside the Syrian capital since an eight-month uprising began against President Bashar Assad. 'Security police blocked off the square where the Baath's Damascus branch is located. But I saw smoke rising from the building and fire trucks around it,' one witness, who declined to be named, told Reuters." (11/20/11)
