"Syrian activists say an eight-year-old girl is among the latest 21 casualties of President Bashar al-Assad's campaign to crush anti-government protests. ... Syrian authorities, who blame armed gangs and Islamist militants for the bloodshed, agreed to an Arab League plan on 2 November to withdraw from restive cities, set political prisoners free and start talks with the opposition. But, since then, the UN says that at least 60 people have been reported killed -- many in Homs." (11/10/11)
