AMMAN - Syrian forces killed three civilians in the city of Hama on Monday as tanks amassed at its entrances and inhabitants blocked streets to prevent a possible advance, residents said.

The three included a 13-year-old boy and a man whose body had been dumped in the Orontes river, a doctor in the city said.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said tanks had surrounded the city after hundreds of troops and security police entered Hama at dawn in buses, according to residents.
