Several hundred residents of Homs staged a demonstration Thursday and demanded the ouster of the provincial governor after a horrific twin bombing at an elementary school killed more than 50 children.The bombings, which shook the neighborhood of Akrama, considered a loyalist bastion, sparked outrage as well as impassioned debates among several groups – supporters of the regime, supporters of the rebels and those in the middle. The protesters vented their anger at Governor Talal al-Barazi over the deadly attack and not at the Damascus authorities, according to video footage of the protest posted on a pro-regime Facebook page. The Observatory said that 50 people, all but four of whom were young students, were killed by two blasts – one the result of a car bomb, and the second the result of a suicide bomber who blew himself up several minutes after the first explosion, as relatives and security personnel were rushing to the scene.However, the details of the attack have been hotly disputed by anti-regime activists, who maintain that two car bombs – and no suicide bombers – were responsible.
