Syria: 120 Government Troops Killed By Gunmen

The Syrian government says armed gangs have killed at least 120 government troops in a town near the Turkish border. The fighting could mark a turning point in what has been a largely peaceful uprising. Government officials have vowed to deal with the killings decisively, and activists say many residents are fleeing in anticipation of a major military attack.
