Activist group: 3 killed in Syria

At least three people were killed in the western Syrian city of Hama on Sunday, according to an opposition activist group.

The Local Coordination Committees of Syria said a child was among its tally of "martyrs," but did not provide additional information.

Meanwhile, the state-run Syrian Arab News agency said Sunday that the bodies of 21 troops "killed in the line of duty by armed terrorist groups" were taken from military hospitals to their final resting places.

CNN cannot independently verify accounts of violence or reports of deaths and injuries in Syria. President Bashar al-Assad's government has restricted access by international journalists.
