Syria's brutal crackdown continues

At least 30 people killed in Hama after security forces opened fire on protesters.

    At least 30 people have been killed in Syria’s fourth largest city, Hama, after security forces opened fire on one of the largest anti-government protests in almost four months of unrest.

    Syria's official news agency said troops only started shooting after protesters, whom the government termed 'infiltrators', tried to burn government buildings.
