uman rights groups say more than 300 people were killed across Syria on Wednesday, making it the deadliest day of the 18-month-old civil war. Two bombs struck the Syrian army headquarters in Damascus, and gunfire ensued between regime forces and rebel fighters trying to topple President Bashar al-Assad. Outside the capital, at least 40 bodies, including those of women and children were found in the village of Diabeya. More than 30,000 people have been killed in violence since the revolt began last March.
