Question of the Day
Syrian city under siege as U.N. urges action
BEIRUT | Syrian soldiers opened fire in the restive city of Homs on Tuesday, and armored vehicles rolled through its streets, activists said, as the U.N. secretary-general urged the world community to take action on Syria.
The U.N. says 2,200 people have been killed since the Syrian uprising began in March, inspired by the revolutions sweeping the Arab world. But nearly six months later, the unrest in Syria has descended into a bloody stalemate with neither side willing to back down.
Think tank: Islamists may join politics after Arab Spring
LONDON | Violent Islamist groups may take advantage of a security vacuum caused by the “Arab Spring” uprisings but are more likely to join the struggle for power under a new political order, experts said Tuesday.
A new report by the International Institute for Strategic Studies (IISS) warned, however, that democracy is not an inevitable outcome of the popular revolts in Egypt, Tunisia, Libya and across the wider Arab world.
“I’m not saying that terrorist activities will necessarily happen, but the collapse of security states is certainly something that creates an operational opportunity for these groups,” Mr. Hokayem told a press conference in London.
