Twenty Syrian soldiers were killed on Saturday and 53 wounded in clashes with presumed army deserters, while 10 security agents and a deserter were killed in a bus ambush, activists said.
An image grab taken from a video uploaded on YouTube on October 28, shows a Syrian anti-regime protester holding a sign that reads in Arabic "To the Arab League: the time frame you gave the regime is about to expire and the killing didn't stop, so what will you do?" during a rally in Aleppo.
