DemocracyNow.org - Syria has intensified its crackdown on opposition protesters despite growing international pressure. This morning, Syrian tanks and gunboats reportedly shelled the main Mediterranean port city of Latakia, killing one person and bringing the total dead to at least 28 since government forces moved into the city on Saturday. The violence follows massive demonstrations on Friday in which tens of thousands of people turned out to protest the Assad regime. On Saturday, a large crowd of mourners gathered in Douma, a suburb of the capital Damascus, for the funerals of four protesters who activists say were killed by security forces.
For more information, Democracy Now! speaks with Haitham Maleh, a leading human rights attorney in Syria who was released from prison earlier this year. Also interviewed is his son Iyas Maleh, a Syrian human rights activist.
