Two bombs rocked one of Syria's military buildings in the capital of Damascus Wednesday, engulfing the building in flames. Iran's state-controlled Press TV said one of its reporters was shot and killed by a sniper as he tried to find out information about the explosions. There was no immediate word on casualities from Syrian authorities. The bombings near the army and air force command headquarters were the latest to hit the city as rebels increase their attacks to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad's regime.
