Syria Activists Call for More Protests (Fox News)


(Fox News) CAIROSyrian activists have called for renewed protests in honor of a 13-year-old boy who allegedly was tortured and killed by security forces.

Human rights groups say more than 1,000 people have been killed since the revolt began in mid-March — a death toll that has enraged and motivated protesters.
