Protests continue across Syria

Anti-government discontent spreads to new towns, as challenge to president Assad's regime grows.

    According to reports from Aleppo, Syria's second city, one hundred anti-government protesters have demonstrated at the main university there.

    Three students have been arrested in what is thought to be the city's first demonstration during the recent wave of unrest.

    And the calls for greater political freedoms in the capital are getting louder by the day, as Al Jazeera's Cal Perry reports from Damascus.
