Syrian Protests Continue Despite Bloodshed

Monday, April 25, 2011

Syrian security forces killed at least 109 protesters on Friday as demonstrations raged throughout the country. At least nine more were killed on Saturday as citizens gathered to bury their compatriots killed the day before. President Assad's promises of modest reform has failed to quell the uprising. What do the protesters want? Will the Assad regime really reform itself?
