Syria unrest as demonstrators call for revolution

In Syria thousands of demonstrators have marched through the southern city
of Daraa demanding greater freedom and an end to corruption.

Recent days have seen even bigger protests, which were met with a government
crackdown that left at least five people dead.

The United States has condemned Syria’s use of “disproportionate force” to suppress
demonstration.
