Despite U.N. presence, violence continues in Syria

Anderson reports that civilian bloodshed in Syria is ongoing– even as U.N. observers, whose mandate is to confirm a so-called ceasefire is intact, arrived in the country. Opposition members say that this same day at least seventy people were killed in Syria. For more than a year now the Assad regime has tried to veil its actions from the outside world. On April 16, Anderson spoke with U.S Ambassador to the U.N., Susan Rice: “They have lied to the international community. They have lied to their own people," she said. The next night, Anderson spoke with an activist named Zaidoun, whose first-hand account from Homs confirms that, indeed, despite the claims of Bashar al-Assad, there is no ceasefire.
