The Syrian Army stormed the restive city of Dara’a with tanks and soldiers and helped detain dozens in towns across the country Monday in an escalation of the widening crackdown on Syria’s five-week-old uprising, according to residents and human rights activists. They said at least 25 people were killed in Dara’a, with reports of bodies strewn in the streets.
