Need to Know News: Top Syrian defense officials killed in blast; Kerry Kennedy says seizure caused car wreck

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For July 18, 2012 – Top Syrian defense officials killed in blast, Kerry Kennedy says seizure caused car wreck, and the New York Knicks let Jeremy Lin go...

Top defense officials killed in blast, Syria says: "Syria's defense minister and deputy defense minister were killed Wednesday in a blast at a national security building in Damascus, state media reported. The attack brings the bloodshed in Syria well into President Bashar al-Assad's inner circle and could mark a pivotal point in the 16-month uprising."

Kerry Kennedy says seizure caused car wreck: "Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of the late Robert F. Kennedy and ex-wife of New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said a partial seizure is the cause of a Friday morning car crash."

• Senate Republicans block DISCLOSE Act for second straight day: "Senate Republicans again Tuesday blocked Democratic legislation that would require greater transparency into who is behind much of the secretive, often negative campaign advertising filling the airwaves this election season."

Bank of America's earnings win: "Bank of America beat analysts' expectations for its second-quarter earnings Wednesday but missed revenue forecasts. The nation's second-largest bank by assets reported net income $2.5 billion, or 19 cents per share, with revenue coming in at $22.2 billion."

• Houston Rockets sign Jeremy Lin as New York won't match offer: "Seven months after dropping him from their team, the Houston Rockets signed Jeremy Lin when the New York Knicks failed to match Houston's three-year, $25-million offer for the point guard."
