Supporters of Syrian president

Supporters of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad holds a Syrian flag with an image of al-Assad in al-Umawiin square in Damascus as several large government rallies take place across the country to support him. Al-Assad issued a general amnesty on Tuesday, a day after he promised wide-ranging but vague reforms to counter a three-month popular revolt against his autocratic rule. Reuters photo
