Tension eased in Syria's Daraa

Mood changed in southern city after local delegation meets President Assad.

    Many protesters have died at the hands of security forces in the southern Syrian city of Daraa.

    But tension there seems to have been significantly reduced after a local delegation met President Bashar al-Assad.

    They say the president promised serious reforms, including to lift the emergency law.
