BEIRUT – Al Qaeda's Syrian affiliate and other radical Islamic factions launched an assault Wednesday on a government intelligence building in the northern city of Aleppo, blowing up part of it before trying to storm the facility amid heavy fighting, activists said.

The Aleppo Media Center and the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said a massive blast hit the Air Force Intelligence branch in the Zahra district on the western edge of the city. Air Force Intelligence is one of the most feared security services in the country.
