More die in Syria as Arab envoys meet with Assad


At least twenty-seven people, eleven of then soldiers, have died in further clashes as a general strike paralysed parts of Syria.

In Hama unverified amateur video showed thousands on the streets calling one again for the over throw of President Bashar-al Assad.

In Deraa people stayed indoors at part of a strike in protest at the Syrian authorities’ crackdown on seven months of unrest.

Assad meanwhile met with a delegation from the Arab League who recently refused to expel Syria from the organisation but insisted on a dialogue between the Syrian government and opposition representatives.

Just down the hill from where the envoys met Assad in Damascus, the Syrian authorities organised a rally to show support for the president.

The US’s ambassador recently left the country fearing for his safety after meeting independently with opposition groups in the country.
