THIS PICTURE WAS TAKEN ON A GUIDED GOVERNMENT TOUR
Syrian soldiers raise their weapons while holding a picture of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad as they leave the eastern city of Deir Zor following a 10-day military operation on August 16, 2011. Syria has repeatedly said it is battling "armed gangs" -- a claim denied by rights groups who say the regime's crackdown on anti-government protests has killed 1,827 civilians since mid-March, while 416 security forces have also died.
