Thousands protest in Syrian city of Banias

Thousands of Syrians carrying candles and chanting anti-government slogans marched on Saturday in a night demonstration to support the city of Deraa, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
Earlier on Saturday, the Syrian government ordered more tanks into Deraa and heavy gunfire was heard in the city as security forces tried to crush a revolt against President Bashar Assad, residents said. Six people were killed in the offensive, the BBC reported.
