Tanks in Syrian city of Deraa

This unverified video, taken from YouTube, is said to show a tank in the city of Deraa, where protests first began on 18 March 2011. The video appears to have been taken as recently as 8 June 2011 (the date of the newspaper that is held up).

In April the army carried out a two-week offensive.

The Red Cross and Red Crescent have since been allowed in to the city to treat casualties.
