BAGHDAD — US forces shot dead two Iraqi civilians south of Baghdad on Saturday following a bomb attack on their convoy, Iraq security officials said, while the US military denied its soldiers opened fire. ‘A roadside bomb hit a US convoy in Yusifiyah on the road to Hilla,’ an interior ministry official said. ‘American forces opened fire randomly, killing two civilians and wounding five.’ A police lieutenant in Yusifiyah, 25 kilometres (15 miles) south of Baghdad, confirmed the incident, which he said took place about 7:00 pm (1600 GMT), but put the toll at two dead and three wounded, one of them seriously. Both spoke on condition of anonymity.
Syria and Iraq share a 605-kilometre border, and Sunni-majority provinces along the frontier were strongholds of resistance against United States forces and the Shiite-led Iraqi governments that have followed the 2003 U.S.-led invasion that toppled Sunni dictator Saddam Hussein. Iraq’s refusal to back Arab measures against Syria, which has since March been trying to crush a popular uprising, has confessional overtones and may boost sectarian division here, analysts say. Iraq now has a Shiite-led government, but was ruled by members of the country’s Sunni minority for most of its history. Syria is ruled by minority Alawites, an offshoot of Shiite Islam, while protesters demanding reforms are largely from its Sunni majority. More than 3,500 people have been killed in the conflict, according to U.N. figures.
" Turkey is a natural part of Europe," he told The Sunday Telegraph in the elegant, cream marble surroundings of his Ankara palace. "Being a member of the Council of Europe and the European Court of Human Rights; being one of the oldest members of Nato, as well as being part of European culture and art - this is a natural path Turkey is flowing into." Mr Gul, 61, founded Turkey's ruling AKP party before becoming prime minister and then foreign minister.
LBC has reported that Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Mouallem requested that Arab league to modify the list of the observers that will be sent by the organization to Syria, because Damascus has reservations about some of the people on the list , the places they will be visiting and the prisoners they will be meeting at the jails . Secretary General of the Arab League (AL), Nabil Elaraby announced Friday that he had received a letter on Thursday evening from Mouallem which included amendments to the draft regarding the duties of the AL mission of observers to be sent to Syria, Syria state-run news agency SANA reported on Friday. LBC also reported today that the Arab league chief is currently meeting with his top advisers to study the amendments proposed by the Syrian side Meanwhile Syrian opposition members said Syria’s stance was just a stalling tactic.
(Newser) – So much for peaceful transitions of power in Syria and Egypt, where regime forces brutally cracked down on protesters today. In Syria, the day after officials agreed "in principle" to let the Arab League oversee a peace process, troops invaded a region near the Turkish border and a town in search of government opponents. One civilian was reported killed. Troops also gunned down two army defectors near the Lebanese border, the AP reports. In Egypt, just 9 days before national elections, troops opened fire on thousands of demonstrators in Tahrir Square. Some 500 were wounded with rubber bullets, Reuters reports (see their compelling video here .)
As a Diasporan Armenian connected to Armenia, as well as historical Armenia (currently in Turkey), part of the multitude of attachments I carry is with Kessab, a region and a town located in the northwestern part of Syria, on the Mediterranean Sea, at the Turkish border. Apparently, it has been inhabited by Armenians since the 11 th century, going back to the Cilician Armenian Kingdom. Kessab remains a predominantly Armenian enclave to this day. A drive down a narrow, winding road through towering mountains eventually leads to my father’s village Karadouran, located directly on the Mediterranean Sea.

4.16pm: Here's a summary of today's events. Syria • Syria has witnessed its largest demonstrations for months as crowds urged foreign governments to withdraw their ambassadors in protest at the government's continuing crackdown. The largest single demonstration appeared to have taken place in Idlib in the north west. In Deraa, in the south, activists staged a mock hanging of president Bashar al-Assad .
Calls and e-mails to Blue Coat officials seeking comment on Thursday were not returned. The company has previously said it did not sell equipment or software to the Syrian government, but it has acknowledged that its products are being used there and could have been obtained through a third party. U.S. sanctions prohibit sales of most goods to the nation; investigators are attempting to determine who provided the Blue Coat technology to Syria.
The shootings came a day before the expiration of a deadline, issued by the Arab League on Wednesday, for Syria to agree to admit teams of human rights monitors. Shortly before the ultimatum, Syria’s foreign minister, Walid Moallem, had said that monitors would be allowed into the country under the terms of an Arab peace plan that Syria accepted earlier in the month but then proceeded to ignore. The Arab League’s secretary general, Nabil Elaraby, said, however, that Syria had requested unspecified amendments to the proposal, making it unclear whether it had in fact agreed.
