Latest Breaking News: Syrian security forces killed six protesters overnight during the protest against Anti-Regime Protest night time prayers of Ramadan, source reported.
According to the source story, The activists said authorities have effectively imposed a news collapse on Hama by cutting cellular, land lines and Internet after reports of at least 100 killed in the first four days of the government assault.
Phone calls by the AP to the city were not going through on Thursday.
On Wednesday, Syrian tanks stormed Hama under serious shelling, taking over a main city square.
The military odious against Hama, 130 miles (210 kilometers) north of the capital Damascus, prompted the UN Security Council to act after months of deadlock.
The Council takes action to the increasing violence with a statement late Wednesday condemning Syrian President Bashar Assad’s forces for attacking civilians and committing human rights violations.
The presidential statement, approved by the Security Council, called on Syrian establishment to instantly end all violence and launch an inclusive political process that will allow the Syrian people to fully exercise ”essential freedoms … including that of appearance and peaceful assembly.”
British Foreign Secretary William Hague said the declaration”demonstrates the rising international concern at the unacceptable behavior of the regime and shows that president Assad is increasingly isolated.”
French Foreign Minister Alain Juppe called the statement ”a turning point in the attitude of the international community” and said Syria must now halt the attacks and implement reforms. / AP
