      To a familiar rhythm of Together, United, We’ll never be defeated, possibly 100,000 men women and children chanted "Allah (God), Syrie (Syria), Bashar (The President) is all we ask!” The numbers of people grew as the day went on, a palpable excitement was in the air.

      ... the hill, but must still be in some sort of sensitive area, as Murray is accosted by a plain clothes security man for taking a photo of an old mosque.
