Interview with a UK citizen who describes the situation in Syria.

THIS IS A FRANK, revealing, and moving interview in which the BBC’s Jeremy Paxman speaks to a young man involved in the protests in Syria, who describes the brutality with which they are being suppressed.

It’s virtually impossible for foreign journalists to cover the uprising in Syria – which although ongoing, seems to have been overshadowed somewhat by events in Libya – and most of the footage that comes out of the country is from brave guys like this, filming on their mobile phones.
