Syria: Army continue 'shelling Deir al-Zour' as pressure grows on president
Saudi Arabia's King Abdullah said in a televised statement that the violence against civilian protesters in Syria was ''unacceptable''.
The Syrian army is reportedly shelling the eastern city of Deir al-Zour for a second day as regional pressure mounts on President Bashar al-Assad.
Activists and residents said explosions and gunfire resumed early on Monday, and that troops backed by tanks had re-entered the city's eastern side.
