Several bombs exploded Tuesday inside a school in the Syrian capital of Damascus, where, activists say, regime forces are maintaining their security headquarters. State-run television quoted the director of the school in Damascus saying seven people were injured and that the bombs were planted by "terrorists," a term President Bashar al-Assad uses for rebels who are trying to oust him. Activists say nearly 30,000 people have died in the 18-month-old uprising against Assad's rule.
