Rumour: Assad dead or debunked
Unusual activity was reported by western intelligence at Syrian chemical weapons sites amid rumors Syrian president Bashar al Assad is either dead or fled . Neither is confirmed, however, the rebels have in recent days made major strategic gains and begun to turn the tide of war againstís Assad forces.
We should run a sweep on the method. Lead poisoning is too obvious. I'll go for car accident on the road north from Damascus.
