Damascus has seen one of its biggest demonstrations for years.
Thousands protested, with many gathering at Sa’hat Al-Umawayeen. They chanted Syria is innocent, and Syria is not a murderer. Some of the slogans were directed at the Arab silence, telling Syria’s Arab brothers, watch out, they’ll be after you next.
Many of the demonstrators were students who had been given the day off by teachers.
A UN Security Council meeting has been called for next Monday.
