Assad may have been tipped off not to attend the meeting by his hard-line younger brother, Maher al Assad, the commander of the feared Fourth Armored Division and the head of the Republican Guard. Maher reportedly feared that Shawkat was planning a coup against his brother's regime and may have acted to shore up his own power base. 

On the other hand, Voltairenet is reporting that Saudi Arabia's Prince Bandar was behind the bombing, for which he received quick retribution...
