Cell phone videos show horrors inside Syria
We're experiencing one of those times in history when an aging dictatorship hangs on to power by using military force against its own people. For nearly a year we've been following the freedom movement in Syria. It appears the dictator Bashir al-Assad is rushing to crush the rebellion before the world can do much about it.
The city of Homs - remember the name - is a little bigger than Philadelphia and it's been under artillery fire for two weeks. Rebels claim 100 civilians were killed Tuesday alone. The citizens there have been filming the siege on cell phones. The video above shows the sights and sounds of what it's like to be a citizen of Homs today.
The man shooting the video was saying: "We are being slaughtered. Where are you, all Arabs?"
21 countries of the Arab League have suspended Syria's membership. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will be in Tunisia on Friday to meet with representatives of 70 countries to talk about what might be done to stop the killing.
