Violence continues in Syria

Businesses in several Syrian cities remained shuttered Wednesday amid ongoing violence and bloodshed as pressure mounted for an international response to the government crackdown on protesters, CNN said. Five civilians were killed in the suburbs of Hama when their vehicle was targeted by military forces, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, an activist group. In retaliation, at least eight troops were killed when army defectors ambushed four military vehicles, the organization said.
