Live Update on Hama Crackdown

Thursday, August 04, 2011

There is international condemnation against the Syrian government this morning as it carries out an attack against the city of Hama, the symbolic center of the anti-government opposition. The United Nations Security Council, which includes Syrian allies like Russia, issued its first condemnation of the violence. Critics say the statement opens the door to a possible Libya-style intervention. The BBC's Jim Muir reports from Beirut, Lebannon. He says almost no information has come out of Hama this morning.
