The war in Syria is escalating. For the first time a mosque has been bombed during this civil war, reports CBS News. Syrian television is reporting 42 dead from the mosque attack including muslim preacher Sheikh Mohammad Said Ramadan al-Buti.
"Syrian state TV says 42 people have been killed and 84 wounded in a suicide bomb attack inside a mosque in Damascus that also killed a top Sunni Muslim preacher and longtime supporter of President Bashar Assad."
Syrian refugees are having trouble immigrating into other countries. According to Reuters, President Obama will soon meet with Jordan's King Abdullah to discuss discrimination of refugees. Although Jordan has allowed 360,000 Syrians to immigrate, it has been denying entry to many Palestinians that were living in Syria.
