70 dead as Asaad urged to leave to Russia
The President of Tunisia Moncef Marzouki has proposed to the Syrian President to go to Russia with his family into exile. In a speech at the first meeting of the Friends of Syria, which was held in Tunis, he said the Assad family should be guaranteed immunity.
"Justice will not be served, but the life of the Syrians is more important than justice," he said, stressing that such a solution, along the lines of the Yemen road plan, is better than a military intervention or the arming of deserters.
"Friends of Syria" hosted more than 70 countries, and called for a ceasefire so that humanitarian aid can reach the worst affected areas.
While international pressure on the Syrian regime seems to be increasing, the bombardment of Homs by government troops continues. According to activists, on Friday at least eight people were killed in the protests in the besieged city. Nationally, according to activists, on Friday at least 50 people were killed, including 12 children
