Syria Fighting Spills Over Borders

A ceasefire in Syria brokered by the U.N. looked unlikely Monday as violence raged in Damascus and on Syria's borders with Turkey and Lebanon. At least 105 people were killed on Monday alone, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, in a clear sign that Assad’s government has no intention of sticking to the peace plan, set for Tuesday. Clashes spilled into Turkey, where one person was killed and three others injured at a refugee camp, fueling tensions between the neighbors. It was reported that a Lebanese journalist was killed by gunfire along the Syrian-Lebanese border after being struck by fire that appeared to come from the Syrian side.
