Syria Says Revolt Has Ended
Syria's government claimed the anti-regime protests were put to end on Friday. The government showed off TV and still images of burned buildings and rubble-strewn streets empty of people in Hama to prove this. During these protests, electricity was shit off, making it difficult for the protestors to continue. Residents of the city warned that medical supplies were running out and food was rotting after the six days of no electricity. "If people get wounded, it is almost impossible to take them to hospital," a resident said by telephone, speaking on condition of anonymity for fear of retaliation.
