Syrian forces kill nine protesters, Jul 02, 2011

Saturday, July 2, 2011
SYRIAN forces shot dead nine protesters yesterday as tens of thousands of people called on President Bashar to step down in some of the biggest demonstrations since Syria's uprising began in March.
The Local Coordination Committees, a group of grassroots activists, said three demonstrators were shot dead in the central city of Homs, three in the northern province of Idlib, two in Damascus suburbs and one in Latakia.
Defying Assad's military crackdown, demonstraters took to the streets again after Friday prayers across the country, from towns near the western Lebanese border to the desert regions near Iraq in the east.
"Bashar get out of our lives," read placards carried by thousands of Kurds who marched in the northeastern city of Amouda, according to a YouTube video taken by resident.

Strauss-Kahn released in NY, Jul 02, 2011

Saturday, July 2, 2011
FORMER IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn was released without bail yesterday after a dramatic court hearing where the sexual assault case against him appeared to shift in his favour.

The turnabout could upend French politics. Strauss-Kahn, 62, was a strong candidate for the 2012 French presidential election until his May 14 arrest and subsequent charges on attempted rape of a hotel maid in New York.
At a hearing to seek changes to his bail conditions, prosecutors said the credibility of the woman at the centre of the case had been thrown into question.
As a result, the court agreed to let Strauss-Kahn be freed and his bail and bond returned. He agreed to return to court as needed, including for a July 18 hearing.
