BEIRUT (AP) -- Activists say Syrian tanks and soldiers have entered the central city of Hama and at least three people have been killed.
Hama has seen some of the largest anti-government protests in
recent weeks as the uprising against President Bashar Assad's
regime gains momentum.
The London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the
Local Coordination Committees both confirmed that Syrian tanks
entered the city at dawn Sunday.
Both said that three people have been killed.
A resident in the city confirmed the assault and casualties.
He asked that his name not be used for fear of reprisals.
