Syrian tanks storm northern town, 10 civilians and 4 soldiers killed

Barely 2 weeks after the overseer of the Uganda genocide Kofi Annan said "the process in on the right track".
BEIRUT, March 24 (Reuters) - Syrian forces pounded the already battered city of Homs with tank and mortar fire and troops raided a rebellious northern town on Saturday, leaving 10 civilians and four soldiers dead, opposition activists said.

With the year-long bloodshed showing no signs of abating, the U.N.-Arab League peace envoy for Syria, Kofi Annan, flew to Moscow in an effort to secure strong Russian support for his efforts to bring about a ceasefire and open political dialogue.
