Activists say 23 dead in Syria violence
President Bashar Assad is trying to crush an 11-month-old uprising with a sweeping crackdown that has so far claimed thousands of lives, but neither the government nor the protesters are backing down.
Clashes between the military and an increasingly bold and armed opposition means much of the country is now engulfed in violence.
The fighting spread to new areas Friday, with army dissidents reportedly seizing a security post in the rural town of Andan in the northwestern province of Aleppo, marking the first time rebels have struck so close to the powerful merchant city of Aleppo. The reports could not be independently confirmed.
With the violence in Syria growing increasingly chaotic, diplomatic efforts to find a solution have increased.
In Washington, a senior State Department official said Friday the U.S. is "cautiously optimistic" of strong support for a new U.N. Security Council resolution condemning the bloodshed in Syria and calling for a political transition in the country.
The official said a draft resolution proposed late Thursday by Morocco would likely clear a Security Council vote later Friday or over the weekend, as it appeared to meet Russian concerns.
Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov while flying to Munich for a security conference that both are attending, and they agreed to have their diplomatic staff continue work on a U.N. draft resolution on Syria.
