Twelve Killed in Syrian City in Clashes With Security Forces


March 28 (Bloomberg) -- Ten Syrian security personnel and two gunmen were killed in clashes in the coastal city of Latakia, the state-run news agency said, as U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said the U.S. won’t intervene there as it has in Libya.

Clinton said on CBS’s “Face the Nation” program that what led to intervention in Libya -- international condemnation, an Arab League call for action, a United Nations Security Council resolution -- is “not going to happen” with Syria.

“What’s been happening there the last few weeks is deeply concerning, but there’s a difference between calling out aircraft and indiscriminately strafing and bombing your own cities,” Clinton said yesterday, referring to Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi’s attacks on civilians, “than police actions which, frankly, have exceeded the use of force that any of us would want to see.”
