                According to various reports , two Syrian policemen were killed by unknown gunmen in Kafar Batna, near Damascus. Syrian state television reported that the two officers were conducting a "normal patrol" when they were fired upon. The killings occurred near Douma, a Damascus suburb where state security forces had killed at least eight protesters last week during protests against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. Separately, Syrian opposition activists, dissatisfied with the glacial pace of reform by Assad’s government, are calling for more demonstrations – particularly to mourn the dozens of people who have died across the country during protests over the last three weeks. The "Syrian Revolution 2011" Facebook page is planning protests for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, labeling it as "Martyrs Week". Assad has made some token gestures of change in response to the protesters demand – including sacking the former cabinet and asking a minister to form a new government. He also said he has formed a committee to study lifting the emergency laws which have been in place since 1963, when his father, Hafez, seized power. In an odd note, the government has cancelled all football matches – apparently fearing that such a large gathering of people could turn into anti-government rallies.

                                April 10, 2011 -- (AP) -- Syrian state television is reporting that the death toll in an ambush on policemen near the port city of Banias has risen to nine. The report says gunmen hiding among trees along a road shot at police, and it broadcast images later of civilian vehicles coming under fire along the same road. The report blamed thugs for the killings, backing up the government's contention that the three weeks of unrest in the country is being fuelled by armed troublemakers rather than those seeking political reforms. Earlier, witnesses said security forces and pro-government gunmen killed four protesters on Sunday in Banias after the army sealed off the city. Hundreds of protesters had gathered there, undaunted by the regime's use of deadly force to try to quell the unrest.
