Syria's state news agency SANA did not describe details of the proposed agency, only saying that the project was one "of a scientific nature."

- Changing the game plan: now the FSA get missiles
- Did the Russian let the cat out the bag: The Lion to bow out?
- He's on a boat! Bashar al Assad allegedly living on a Russian warship
- Iran will soon send one of these four lucky animals into outer space
- Cool on Syrian unrest, President Assad is 'dealing with it'
