ANKARA - Turkey's President Abdullah Gul expressed horror on Monday over Syrian security forces' use of heavy weapons, including tanks, to quell civilian protests in the central Syrian city of Hama.

"The recent developments in Syria have deepened our already existing concerns. The footage from yesterday's events has horrified us," Gul said in remarks reported by state-run Anatolian news agency.

"The use of heavy weapons in Hama against civilians has given me a deep shock," he said.
