LONDON - US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said that nearly 1,000 people had been killed in Syria and called on President Bashar Assad to halt the violence.

"This cruelty must end and the legitimate aspirations of the Syrian people must be honored," Clinton said during a news conference with British counterpart William Hague.

"Foreign secretary Hague and I are absolutely consistent with our message to the Assad government," she added.

"Stop the killings, the beatings the arrests, release all political prisoners and detainees. Begin to respond to the demands that are upon you for a process of credible and inclusive democratic change."
