AMMAN - Syrian forces killed at least nine civilians and wounded dozens in a major tank assault on the city of Hama that began at dawn on Sunday to crush pro-democracy demonstrations, residents said.

One of the residents, a doctor, said there were 51 people wounded at Badr hospital alone, which was running short of blood for transfusions. He said tanks had surrounded another main hospital, al-Horani.
