What do pupils in Damascus think of Syria protests?

The BBC's Lyse Doucet talks to students in Damascus about what they know about the protests in Syria.

During the last six months of protests, young Syrians have been out on the streets of some cities. But one pupil at the girl's school visited by the BBC said "students had not been protesting in Damascus".

In recent days, Syrian security forces have been engaged in their latest concerted effort to quell opposition to Bashar al-Assad's regime in and around Homs - an area that has seen frequent mass protests.
