Syrian Government Forces Raid University Campus

At least four students were killed Wednesday night at a university in Syria's largest city. The deaths came as security forces raided several dormitories after students went out of mass anti-government protests on Wednesday. At least 50 people and as many as 200 were rounded up and arrested. One component of the U.N.-brokered peace plan that was supposed to into affect more than two weeks ago is that Syrians be allowed to demonstrate. Authorities have since closed the university until further notice.
