Today's headlines from our Editor
Fighting Reported In Damascus
Activists report that opposition fighters are engaging with government forces in several neighborhoods in the Syrian capital of Damascus on Monday morning. Although violence has been widespread in the rest of the country, Damascus has been largely peaceful so far in the Syrian revolt, due to the tight grip President Bashar al-Assad's forces keep on the city.
Romney Struggles To Explain Bain Exit
Mitt Romney has been struggling to explain the timing of his exit from Bain Capital the last few days, as Democrats decry his assertion that he left the firm in 1999. Although no evidence exists that Romney was involved in running the firm after this time, his name or signature appears on dozens of SEC documents filed between his claimed retirement date and August 2001. Under pressure, Romney advisor Ed Gillespie told CNN on Sunday that the candidate "retired retroactively" from Bain at that time.
Dozens Dead After Floods Ravage Japan
Over a year's worth of rain fell on some areas of Japan over the weekend, causing devastating flooding and displacing over 250,000 people from their homes. At least 26 people died as a result of the disaster, and rescuers are searching for at least six missing people. Authorities warn that although the worst is over, there is more rain forecast and further flooding or landslides may occur.
