"The Syrian army said Thursday it has begun withdrawing from a city at the heart of the country's uprising, but the regime expanded its crackdown elsewhere by deploying soldiers and arresting hundreds ahead of a new wave of anti-government protests. The siege on Daraa — the southern city where Syria's six-week-old uprising began — lasted 11 days with President Bashar Assad unleashing tanks and snipers to crush dissent there." (05/06/11)
