Eleven or more people have been killed after Syrian forces stormed a town near the capital Damascus. The invasion was an effort to crack down on protests against the President Bashar al-Assad. 300 people were arrested and taken away in eleven buses. UN Human Rights advisors say the crackdown could be considered as crimes against humanity. More than 1,600 have been killed and more than 20,000 imprisoned by Syrian Security Forces since the enforcement against protest began in March.
