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.

    "Rrestricting access" , well lets ask why they would be restricting access? Hmmm, could it be they're afraid of being invaded by Great Brittian and the US?

    #1 Happy New Year

    I'm thinking the same thing. Too much one sided information.

    I wouldn't take the word of a government who will not let journalists into their country and who call their fallen "martyrs".

    Although I do feel bad for the child.

    Again, let the Arab League take care of it.
