"Syrian troops detained hundreds more people in towns across the country yesterday as they pursued their relentless crackdown against the stubbornly persistent protest movement that has swelled in recent weeks to challenge the government. Troops backed by tanks sealed off the Damascus suburb of Maadamiyeh in the early hours of the morning, and residents heard gunfire as soldiers conducted house-to-house raids looking for people who had joined in recent antigovernment demonstrations."
