    The effects of Syria’s uprising are becoming more and more evident in the capital, Damascus. Hundreds of plainclothes police roam the city's neighbourhoods, ready to disperse and arrest gathering crowds.

    Power outages are common and queues for petrol go on for miles. Residents of Damascus tell Al Jazeera of the daily battle they face just to stay alive as the fight gets close to the heart of the Syrian government.
