Syrian forces in Hama are said to have broken up a protest marking 30 years since the massacre in the city by troops loyal to President Assad’s father.
Planned demonstrations on Thursday were prevented by the security presence, reports say. But amateur video purports to show a rally there to honour the 10,000 people killed in 1982 when an Islamist uprising was crushed.
Memories of that massacre have been revived by the current crackdown, activists say. They claim more than 7,000 people have been killed in the latest challenge to the Assad regime.
The opposition called rallies across Syria to mark the anniversary as this 11-month-old revolt continues.
As yet more deaths were reported, Syria’s ally Russia showed signs that it would not accept a new watered-down draft UN Security Council resolution endorsing an Arab League plan to end the bloodshed.
