Bloody Day In Syria As Unrest Continues

-/AFP/Getty Images(DERAA, Syria) -- A crackdown by Syrian state security on anti-government demonstrators left at least 13 people dead Friday, as forces opened fire on thousands of protesters in the southern city of Deraa.

Organizers of the demonstrations have called on Syrians to take to the streets every Friday until their demands for reforms are met.

Protesters argue that proposals set forth by President Bashar al-Assad do not go far enough.
