Russian leader Vladimir Putin and US President Barack Obama were unable to resolve their differences on Syria in a phone talk following a Damascus bomb attack.

A bomb struck at the heart of Syria's senior command yesterday, killing at least three of President Bashar al-Assad's top brass in an attack claimed by rebels, amid fighting in the capital city.

The first such deadly attack against Assad's inner core came ahead of a showdown today between the West and Russia over a UN Security Council resolution calling for sanctions against Damascus.
