Pressure grows on Syria to stop violence
Latest amateur video from Syria appears to show violent clashes continuing in the city of Deraa, amidst growing international pressure on President Assad to end the crackdown on demonstrators.
Last week Assad lifted a 48 year-old emergency law, but since then human rights' groups say 400 people have been killed and five hundred arrested.
The government crackdown in Deraa started on Friday and has gone on all weekend.
