A Syrian police officer stands next to the VIP visi-

Syria yesterday.
Militants storm
U.S.embassy
No Americans hurt in raid
involving explosives, rifles; al-
Qaida-linked group suspected
DAMASCUS, Syria (AP) - Islamic militants tried
to storm the U.S. Embassy yesterday using automatic
rifles, hand grenades and a van rigged with explosives,
the Syrian government said. Four people were killed
in the brazen attack, including three of the assailants,
but no Americans were hurt.
There was no immediate claim of responsibility for
the attack. An al-Qaida offshoot group called Jund
al-Sham was suspected, said Syria's ambassador to
the U.S., Imad Moustapha, in comments to CNN. The
radical fundamentalist group has been blamed for
several attacks in Syria in recent years, he said.
Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice praised
Syrian security agents for repelling the attack, but
added it was too early to know who may have been
behind it.
The attackers apparently did not breach the high
walls surrounding the embassy's white compound in
the city's diplomatic neighborhood.
One of Syria's anti-terrorism forces was killed and
11 other people were wounded, the official news agen-
cy reported. The wounded including a police officer,
two Iraqis and seven people employed at nearby tech-
nical workshop.
A Chinese diplomat also was hit in the face by
shrapnel and slightly injured while standing on top
of a garage at the Chinese Embassy, China's Foreign
Ministry said. The diplomat, political counselor Li
Hongyu, was in stable condition at a hospital, the
ministry said.
A witness said a Syrian guard outside the U.S.
Embassy also was killed, but the government did
not immediately confirm that. As at most American
embassies worldwide, a local guard force patrols out-
side the compound's walls while U.S. Marines are
mostly responsible for guarding classified documents
and fighting off attackers inside the compound.

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla.
Spacewalking astronauts lose bolt, spring
Spacewalking astronauts lose bolt and spring, worry about potential for damage
Spacewalking astronauts worried they have may have gummed up a successful
job connecting an addition to the international space station yesterday when a bolt,
spring and washer floated free.
Astronaut Joe Tanner was working with the bolt when it sprang loose, floated
over the head of Heidemarie Stefanyshyn-Piper and skittered across the 17 1/2-ton
box-like truss that they were hooking up.
While the washer went out into space safely, Tanner worried the bolt and spring
could get into the truss's wiring and tubing and causing problems.
"Not a good thing," Tanner said. "Let's hope it doesn't end up somewhere in the
mechanism.
"I don't see it anywhere."
NASA managers were examining whether the lost bolt would be a problem.
Space debris can be dangerous if it punctures space station walls or spacesuits and
can jam crucial mechanisms.
SAN JOSE, Calif.
HP chairwoman to step down inJanuary
Hewlett-Packard Chairwoman Patricia Dunn will step down in January and be
succeeded by CEO Mark Hurd amid a widening scandal involving the computer
and printer company's possibly illegal probe into media leaks.
Director George Keyworth 11, who acknowledged sharing company informa-
tion with reporters, resigned from HP's board later yesterday morning. The board
had asked Keyworth to resign in May, but he refused.
Hurd will retain his existing positions as chief executive and president and Dunn
will remain as a director after she relinquishes the chair on Jan. 18.
GAZA CITY, Gaza Strip
Hamas gives Abbas go-ahead for talks
Hamas officials gave Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas the greenlight
yesterday for negotiations with Israel, a major shift in the militant Islamic
group's position as it works to end its international isolation.
An Israeli military court, meanwhile, ordered the release of 19 Hamas offi-
cials - including Cabinet ministers and lawmakers - from an Israeli prison.
The men, arrested by Israel after the June 25 capture of Israeli Cpl. Gilad Sha-
lit by Hamas-linked militants, will remain behind bars for several more days
pending an appeal by prosecutors.
TEHRAN, Iran
Iran vows to help establish security in Iraq
Iraq's prime minister made his first official visit to Iran yesterday, asking Tehran
to prevent al-Qaida militants from slipping across the border to carry out attacks,
an Iraqi official said. Iran's president promised to help Iraq establish security.
The visit by Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki reflected the complex relation-
ship between mostly Shiite Iran and Iraq's government, dominated by Shiite
allies of Tehran. Ties have grown stronger between the two, including new oil
cooperation.
