UNITED NATIONS , Nov. 28 (Xinhua) -- The U.N. Security Council on Thursday strongly condemned the mortar shelling against the Russian Embassy in Damascus as a "heinous terrorist act," underlining the need to "bring the perpetrators to justice."

"The members of the Security Council are outraged and strongly condemned the mortar shelling on 28 November against the Embassy of the Russian Federation in Damascus, Syria, which killed one and wounded 9 people including among the embassy security personnel," said a statement issued to the press by Liu Jieyi , the Chinese U.N. ambassador who holds the rotating council presidency for this month.

"The members of the Security Council extended their condolences to the family of the victim and expressed their sympathy to all those injured in this heinous terrorist act," the statement said.

Four mortar shells landed during the attack on Thursday, with one striking the embassy, while three landed in the vicinity of the embassy, the pan-Arab al-Mayadeen TV reported.

The shelling was followed by shooting from security forces to disperse people from the embassy and later , from Burnieh Street, where the embassy is located, the TV report said.

Mortar shells have previously landed in the vicinity of the Russian Embassy, the Chinese Embassy and the Iraqi one. The rebels are thought to be using indiscriminate mortar shelling to attempt to destabilize security inside the heavily fortified Syrian capital, said reports.

"The members of the Security Council reaffirmed that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security , and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, wherever, whenever and by whomsoever committed," said the statement.

The Security Council members reaffirmed the need to combat the threats by all means , in accordance with the Charter of the United Nations and all obligations under international law, in particular international human rights, refugee and humanitarian law, it said.


What can be better than the excitement, atmosphere and rivalries of college football each Saturday? You guessed it; it?s profiting from your college football picks and free football picks. While everyone has different reasons for watching college football , to be successful, you must have a strategy for making your college football picks. Compared to the NFL, college football has roughly four times the number of games played each week. Although this can be overwhelming to the average bettor, it can also offer more opportunities to profit with your free football picks and NCAA football picks. So how can you be successful making your college football picks? In this article we will give you some sports handicapping tips and advice to help you cash-in on your NCAA picks including your NCAA football picks and free football picks.

The college football season starts out with their non-conference games each year. This is where you get a first glimpse and preview as to the strength of each conference. This knowledge can be very helpful in discovering what teams are under-rated and over-rated. You can then use the knowledge gained from the non-conference schedule to help make your college football picks during conference play and the bowl season. Because it can be extremely challenging and time consuming to become familiar with all the players, coaches and schemes of over one hundred college teams. You may consider specializing in a few conferences to help narrow your focus and increase your betting results.

As with any sport , it is extremely important to do your homework before making your college football picks and NCAA picks. Due to the large number of college football teams and games played, you can often find very favorable lines each week. Unlike the NFL, the talent levels found on college football teams can be very lopsided. Researching the offensive and defensive statistics such as total yards per game, rushing yards per game, passing yards per game and points scored per game should be considered on both sides of the ball. However , it is also important to consider a team?s strength of schedule for both conference and non-conference play.

Historical trends can often provide valuable information and foresight into future results. In the pros, teams are more apt to adapt. If the run is not working, they go to the passing attack. In college football, many programs are built a certain way and therefore are less versatile. This can create favorable match-ups that can be more exploited. For example, certain coaching styles and schools are more effective against certain teams. Another trend to look for are teams that play poorly on the road. The Hawaii warriors are a great example of a team who plays below their potential on the road. Sometimes you can find teams that have been blowing away their opponents but are not getting the respect they deserve. These teams may have been bad for a long time and but they may have finally turned the corner.
