Syria: Assad wishes new defense minister luck
Syria: Assad attends new minister's swearing-in, first clue to president's whereabouts
By The Associated Press

BEIRUT (AP) Syria's state-run news agency says President Bashar Assad has attended the swearing-in of a new defense minister.

The statement Thursday did not specify exactly where the swearing-in took place. But it's the first word on Assad since a bombing a day earlier killed three members of his inner circle, including the defense minister.

State-run TV says Assad gave the new defense minister "instructions" and wished him luck.
