Three students were killed, 21 were injured, and an additional 130 were arrested when Syrian security forces raided a dorm at Damascus University late Tuesday. The students reportedly refused to participate in a pro-regime rally held in support of President Bashar al-Assad’s speech promising reform, which was held at the university Monday. The raid also came only hours before Syrian Foreign Minister Walid Moallan gave a news conference repeating Assad’s pledge to negotiate with protesters and other dissidents. Meanwhile, witnesses said there was a prison riot at a detention facility in the eastern province of Hasakah, where the prisoners reportedly took control of the facility and demanded freedom before being surrounded by army troops.
