Was it a bomb or exploding tire?

An explosion hit a bus carrying Iranian pilgrims in Damascus last week killing at least three people and shattering windows in nearby buildings, in an incident. The Syrian government said was an accident and not an attack. Witnesses said a bomb had hit the bus near the Shi'ite shrine of Sayyeda Zainab, killing six people, but Syrian officials said it was an exploding tire. "There was no terrorism factor behind the bus incident," Syrian Interior Minister Said Sammour said.

The U.S. is watching Damascus very carefully today. Syrian President Bashar al Assad is hosting Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez. Chavez has made no secret of his disdain for the U.S. and Syria and the U.S. don't work well together because of their relationship with Iran, North Korea and terrorist organizations. The Presidents and their ministers are meeting to review a series of 11 existing agreements. One of the big worries for the U.S. intelligence community is that relationship give enemies of the US direct access to this hemisphere.
