Palestinian members from Youth Salafists group chant slogans while waving their black flags during a protest against the Egyptian and Syria regimes in Rafah Refugee Camp, southern Gaza Strip, on Aug. 22, 2013. Arabic on poster reads "Criminals and murderers." Syrian government forces pressed their offensive in eastern Damascus on Thursday, bombing rebel-held suburbs where the opposition said the regime had killed more than 100 people the day before in a chemical weapons attack. The government has denied allegations it used chemical weapons in artillery barrages on the area known as eastern Ghouta, calling the charges "absolutely baseless." (Associated Press)
