Syrian activists say no dialogue until killings stop

AMMAN - The main activists' group coordinating demonstrations against autocratic rule rejected on Sunday a "national dialogue" announced by the authorities, saying they must stop shooting protesters first.

"The peaceful demonstrations and civic disobedience will continue ... It is morally and politically unacceptable to have national dialogue before stopping all forms of killings and violence against peaceful protesters ... lifting the siege on cities and releasing all political prisoners," the Local Coordination Committees said in a statement sent to Reuters.
