A video surveillance tape revealed new details Wednesday on a daring attempt to blow up the US Embassy in Damascus that was foiled by Syrian security guards in September. The surveillance tape, which was obtained by the US TV network ABC, shows three unidentified gunmen parking their car in front of the American embassy and attempting to storm its front gate. Extracts of the tape disclosed by ABC showed what appeared to be armed and masked gunmen getting out of a white car next to the embassy's wall. Other extracts showed the car blowing up and several passers-by lying on the sidewalk amid raging flames and a column of smoke.
