"Syrian forces heaped more punishment Tuesday on residents of restive towns, detaining hundreds in raids or at checkpoints, firing on people trying to retrieve the bodies of anti-government protesters and even shooting holes in rooftop water tanks in a region parched by drought, witnesses said. In the southern city of Daraa, where Syrian army tanks and snipers killed at least 22 people a day earlier."
