BEIRUT - Syria vowed on Wednesday to punish those responsible for a bomb attack which killed the defense minister and President BasharAssad's brother-in-law, saying it would "chop any hand that harms national security."

"The armed forces are determined to terminate the killing gangs and criminals and pursue them wherever they go," a military statement read out on state television said. "Whoever thinks that by targeting some commanders they can twist Syria's arm, is delusional."
