Syrian President Bashar al-Assad appears to have disappeared from Damascus after his top security staff was killed in a suicide bombing. There has been no statement fromthe president, nor any sign of him since the attack Wednesday on the central government headquarters.

Clashes erupted Thursday near government headquarters in Damascus as opposition forces attacked loyalist troops, vowing to “liberate” the capital, activists and residents said.

One person was reported killed in the fighting by late morning in a neighborhood next to the Council of Ministers, a huge complex, and a Damascus University campus, sources said.

Assad’s brother-in-law, his defense minister and a top general were all killed Wednesday at a meeting of defense and security chiefs.
