Syrian opposition meets to boost protests

About 200 Syrian opposition members have met outside the capital, Damascus, in a significant gathering of dissidents on Syrian soil.



Beirut: About 200 Syrian opposition members
have met outside the capital, Damascus, in a significant
gathering of dissidents on Syrian soil.
The Syrian opposition consists of a variety of groups
with often differing ideologies, including Islamists and
secularists, and there have been many meetings of dissidents
who say they represent the opposition. But yesterday`s meeting
was unusual in part because it was held inside Syria, rather
than neighbouring countries.
A news conference was planned for today.

The Syrian uprising began in mid-March, amid a wave of
protests in the Arab world that toppled autocrats in Tunisia,
Egypt and Libya. Syrian President Bashar Assad has reacted
with deadly force that the UN estimates has left some 2,600
people dead.
