DAMASCUS, September 12 (RIA Novosti)-The U.S. Embassy in the Syrian capital, Damascus, appears to have been attacked Tuesday morning.

A series of explosions followed by gunfire rocked the Syrian capital, Damascus, a RIA Novosti correspondent reported from the city, and a policeman standing at a cordoned off area said the shooting had happened at the American diplomatic mission.

The district houses many missions, but the Russian Embassy is located in a different part of the city.
