US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Wednesday strongly condemned “ongoing violence” by the Syrian government against demonstrators, saying Damascus needed to launch a “serious political process” to end deadly unrest.

Clinton said the United States was particularly concerned about conditions in Homs, where at least 10 people were reported killed in clashes on Tuesday after 20,000 people staged an overnight sit-in protest demanding embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad‘s ouster.

The government “must cease the violence and begin a serious political process,” Clinton said.
