TUNIS - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday appealed to Syrian security forces to disobey orders from their commanders to carry out acts of violence against opponents of President Bashar Assad.

"Their (Syrian security forces) continuing to kill their brothers and sisters is a stain on their honor," Clinton said.

"Their refusal to continue this slaughter will make them heroes in the eyes of not only Syrians but people of conscience everywhere. They can help the guns fall silent."
