A fourth militant who allegedly participated in the attack on the US Embassy in Damascus has died from injuries, a Syrian official said Wednesday. The man died at a hospital Tuesday, said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak to the media. There was no immediate claim of responsibility the attack but suspicion immediately fell on a little-known al-Qaida offshoot called Jund al-Sham, Arabic for Soldiers of Syria. Syria's ambassador to the US, Imad Moustapha, told The Associated Press it was too early to say but "it's logically possible" Jund al-Sham was responsible.
