More than 100 people were killed in Syria on Tuesday as President Bashar al-Assad warned the country is in the midst of an all-out war. The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least 68 civilians, 41 soldiers and seven rebel fighters were killed in nationwide violence. Assad issued his warning while meeting with new cabinet members.
