Damascus, Syria

History might have been different had Hafez al-Assad's eldest son and chosen successor not been killed in a car accident in 1994. For years afterwards, Bassel al-Assad's portraits and memorials were seen all over Syria. Then, in 2000, Hafez died and his younger son, Bashar, took over. Today is the fourth anniversary of the run-amock Syrian uprising. [1996]
