British Foreign Secretary William Hague on Friday said "I am extremely concerned by the reports of deaths and casualties across Syria" after the bloodiest day since anti-regime protests erupted a month ago left at least 70 dead. Hague also called on the Syrian government to "exercise restraint instead of repression."

" I condemn the unacceptable killing of demonstrators by the Syrian security forces," Hague added, saying the Syrian government led by President Bashar al-Assad should address the legitimate demands of the Syrian people," and that "Emergency Law should be lifted in practice, not just in word."
