US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday condemned violence against protesters in Syria and said the Syrian government must stop the arbitrary arrest, detention and torture of prisoners.

Five civilians were killed in Banias last week and residents identified Amjad Abbas, the fired police chief, as one of the officers seen beating a villager in the nearby town of Baida, the Observatory said, citing sources in Damascus.
