Syrian Tanks Storm City

Syria launched a deadly pre-Ramadan raid on the restive city of Hama, killing at least 61 people and injuring more than 100 more, according to human-rights groups. Residents took to the streets in an attempt to block approaching tanks, and Syrian forces responded with gunfire and shelling, according to residents. Protesters have been calling for the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad since mid-March.
