Clinton: 'Assad must respond to demands of his people'

Syrian President Bashar Assad's government must address the demands of the people for change, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday after renewed protests in Syria.
“The Syrian government must respond to the Syrian people’s call for change,” Clinton said in a statement. “It must realize that violence and intimidation will not answer their call.”
The United States, reacting to the killing of 30 protesters by Syrian security forces on Friday, threatened to take new steps against the Syrian government unless it stopped killing and harassing its people.
