"Children, innocent children!" a voice says. Amateur video shows people running and screaming while carrying children, some with blood streaming down their face, from the scene of a purported bombing in Hama province in Syria. Reuters cannot independently verify the content of the video, but Syrian warplanes and troops did pursue a countrywide offensive on Thursday, according to activists and state media. In Damascus, smoke rises from buildings where government forces loyal to president Bashar al-Assad clashed with insurgents. Only the coastal Assad strongholds were spared violence. The United nations says some 60,000 people have been killed in the 22 month conflict with massacres occurring at the hand of both sides.
