Protests rage in Syria as international pressure increases on embattled president Bashar al-Assad. This video shows what activists say are demonstrations in the town of Talbiseh. Reuters could not independently verify the footage. The demonstrations come amid increasing violence in the war-ravaged country.

The deaths come as several world powers demanded a transitional government be put in place to end violence now well over a year old. Andrew Raven, Reuters
