Syrian demonstrators hold Syrian independence flags during a protest against Syria's President Bashar al-Assad in Kafranbel, Syria, February 19, 2012. Syrian opposition called for civil disobedience in the capital Damascus, while Egypt recalled its ambassador to Damascus, state television said on Sunday, in what appeared to be the latest step in a series of Arab diplomatic moves to intensify pressure on President Bashar al-Assad, who is trying to crush a popular uprising in Syria.
