RIGHT NOW: Syrian Warplanes Bomb Suburbs Of The Capital

BEIRUT (AP) - Activists say the Syrian military has bombarded the outskirts of Damascus and other areas around the country.
    
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says warplanes bombed neighborhoods around the capital including the rebel stronghold of Douma today.
    
A Damascus-based activist says government troops are firing rockets and mortars at orchards near the southern suburbs of Daraya and Kfar Sousseh.
    
The Observatory meanwhile says troops are fighting rebels in Aqraba and Beit Saham, also south of Damascus, near the city's international airport.
    
It also reported air raids, clashes and shelling around in other parts of the country.
    
The U.N. said Wednesday that more than 60,000 people have been killed since Syria's crisis began in March 2011 - a figure much higher than previous opposition estimates.

It's a year-round problem in our community, but Black Friday is like Christmas for crooks. "I came back to my car and the window was broke out, everything was gone from the jockey box," said one car prowling victim. "It made me angry, it's a violation."
