"Gunfire erupted across a key port city in northern Syria on Sunday hours after the army sealed it off, deploying tanks, setting up checkpoints and cutting communications to area, human rights activists said. Activist Mazen Darwish said security forces appeared to be cracking down on protesters who were gathering in Banias on Sunday. He said at least four tanks were deployed in the city, apparently to protect the oil refinery." (04/10/11)
