International pressure mounts against Syrian regime

Yesterday in Syria, protesters calling for the removal of President Assad saw their bloodiest day yet. Estimates say 70 people died in violent clashes with security forces. As President Assad continues his violent tactics, the opposition seems to be inching closer to militarization.

Meanwhile, international pressure on the regime is mounting. The Arab League recently suspended Syria's membership.  Yesterday, Jordan's King Abdullah became the first Arab ruler to ask President Assad to step down.

Yaser Tabbara, a founding member of the Syrian National Council, joins us to discuss the latest news about Syria.
