Syria’s government deployed tanks against demonstrators, boosting the death toll after almost two months of unrest, according to Syrian human-rights activists.

At least 24 protesters have been killed in the last two days, including 13 who died when the village of Hara outside the southern city of Daraa was shelled, Mahmoud Merhi of the Arab Organization for Human Rights said by phone from Syria today. At least six people died in an assault on the city of Homs yesterday and five in Jassem the past two days, said Merhi and Ammar Qurabi, the head of the National Organization for Human Rights. Two soldiers were killed, Merhi said.

Security forces also forcefully dispersed about 2,000 people who had gathered at a demonstration at the residential compound of a university in the city of Aleppo, Merhi said, adding that protesters were beaten with clubs.[Read More]
