Syrian clashes 'kill 23 soldiers' in city of Rastan
At least 30 people - including 23 soldiers - have died in heavy overnight clashes in the central Syrian city of Rastan.
(BBC NEWS) ISTANBUL - The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said dozens of others were wounded in the city, in the restive Homs province.
Three troop carriers were destroyed in fighting, the UK-based group said.
If confirmed, the attack would be one of the deadliest suffered by security forces in the 14-month-long uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.
