Al Jazeera is running a live blog of events in Syria, despite the Syrian Regime's attempts to muzzle all reporting as they go about their murderous repressions, much like the Israel tried to black out the news during the depredations against Gaza back in the Winter of 2008-09. It is instructive to read what has happened since 2:30 pm today, as excerpted from this blog link.

    Rights group Amnesty International has urged the UN Security Council to refer Syria to the International Criminal Court.

    "The Syrian government is clearly trying to shatter the will of those peacefully expressing dissent by shelling them, firing on them and locking them up," Salil Shetty, Amnesty secretary-general, said in a statement.

    "The Syrian government and its security forces have long felt able to operate with total impunity, and we are now seeing the result of that in the kinds of bloody acts that they have been committing on the streets of Syria in recent days."

    "President al-Assad and those around him have to understand that their actions will have consequences, namely that if they gun down their own citizens the international community will hold them individually criminally responsible before the ICC or national courts of states exercising universal jurisdiction."

    He also said men who he believed were members of the plain clothes secret police were carrying assault rifles.
