    Syrian rights groups say security forces killed more than 50 anti-government activists during the last two days. 

    President Bashar al-Assad has been meeting with local dignitaries over the two-month long unrest, with a view to urging a national dialogue.  

    But opposition groups within and outside the country are setting strong conditions for any talks.
