AMMAN - Syrian tanks deployed at the entrances to the city of Hama on Sunday but later pulled back, residents said, two days after it saw the largest protest against President Bashar Assad since an uprising began three months ago.

Tanks and armored vehicles headed north after moving close to the city of 650,000 people. Dozens of people were earlier arrested in neighborhoods on the edges of Hama and secret police patrols were seen in the city, they said.
