A blast shatters the morning routine of buying bread in Syria. Amateur video purportedly captures the chaos when a blast hit a building near a bakery in Damascus, Tuesday. A man can be heard calling out ''Is everybody all right?" More footage purports to show Syria's second city, Aleppo, Tuesday, as aircraft fly overhead, leaving in their wake an explosion and a large cloud of smoke in the skyline. Reuters cannot confirm the content of the video and it's unclear if anyone was killed in either blast. The video comes one day after the U.N. said the death toll in the nearly two year-old conflict is likely approaching 70,000 -- up nearly 10,000 from just the start of the year.
