• Reports have it that Assad’s army shelled a farming village in central Syria yesterday, killing as many as 200. [AP/WSJ]

• An anonymous “Special Correspondent” reports that the Syrian unrest has affected Damascus, mainly through refugees, to an extent not expected in the West, questioning President Assad’s ability to hold onto power. [WP]
