Desert Rose

Today more demonstrations in Syria followed Friday prayers. At least 18 protesters are reported killed by security forces. The UN estimates more than 1,100 people have died so far in president Bashar al-Assad's brutal crackdown on the Arab Spring in his country (title link). Meanwhile, the dictator's wife, British-born Asma al-Assad is rumoured to have brought her children to England (CLICK). American Vogue described her as "A Rose In The Desert" for a grovelling article which caused uproar in the USA and has since been removed from Vogue's website (CLICK). The Rose is keeping shtoom.
Update: the Foreign Office warns Britons to leave Syria immediately. CLICK for more information.
