Democracy Now: Syrians Protest Deadly Raid as White House Looks Beyond Ceasefire


Syrian activists opposed to the regime of President Bashar al-Assad are planning a massive day of protest today after a government raid that killed four students at Allepo University. In Washington, White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said the international community should consider new steps with the apparent failure of a U.N.-brokered ceasefire.

Jay Carney: “It is clear and we will not deny that the plan has not been succeeding thus far and the regime has made no effort to take any of the steps required under the Anna plan, including moving toward implementing a full ceasefire. If the regime’s intransigence continues, the international community is going to have to admit defeat and work to address the serious threat to peace and stability being perpetrated by the Assad regime.”
