Syrian tanks attack two central towns

Human rights groups say over 1,000 people have been killed since mid-March.

Beirut: Syrian activists say government troops backed by tanks are attacking two central towns that have seen intense protests against President Bashar Assad`s regime.

The activists say the attack on Rastan and Talbiseh in the central province of Homs started early on Sunday.

The activists say all roads leading to the two towns have been closed off by security forces and soldiers. The activist spoke on condition of anonymity, fearing government reprisals.

Human rights groups say more than 1,000 people have been killed since the revolt erupted in Syria in mid-March — a toll that has both enraged and motivated the protesters.

The 10-week-old protests have evolved from a disparate movement demanding reforms to a resilient uprising that is now seeking Assad`s ouster.
