MOSCOW - Russia said on Monday it was concerned by reports of bloodshed in the Syrian city of Hama and called for an end to the violence.

"Moscow is seriously concerned by information about numerous casualties," the Foreign Ministry said. "The use of force against civilians and representatives of state structures is unacceptable and must cease."

Rights activists said 80 civilians were killed in Sunday's tank-backed assault on the central Syrian city of Hama, one of the bloodiest days of a five-month-old uprising against President Bashar Assad.
