    Syrian state television on Monday broadcast funerals of four soldiers reportedly killed over the weekend in the western city of Homs.

    State TV said the troops were killed in armed clashes with what it described as "armed terrorist groups".

    President Bashar al-Assad has sent tanks deep into Syria's third city Homs, escalating a military campaign to crush a seven-week-old uprising against his autocratic rule.
