AMMAN - Security forces have moved into central Syria and coastal areas ahead of Friday prayers in a test of will for demonstrators determined to maintain protests against the rule of President Bashar Assad.

In a show of force, tanks have taken up positions near the urban centers of Homs, Rastan and Banias in the past two days.

Last week, Assad ordered the army into Deraa, cradle of the uprising that began with demands for greater freedom and an end to corruption and is now pressing for his removal.
