In this citizen journalism undated image made on a mobile phone and provide by Homs Quarters Union, Lina the mother of Syrian pianist Malek Jandali, looks on after her home was stormed by Syrian Pro-government gunmen, known as Shabiha, sits at her house in Homs, Syria. In July, Jandali participated in a rally in Washington, D.C., pressing for freedom in Syria and performing a piece he wrote called "I Am My Homeland." a day later, he said, pro-government gunmen stormed his parents' house in Homs and beat his father, Maamoun, and his mother, Lina. Syrian security agents are hunting down activists and their families inside the country and abroad in a fearsome new tactic by President Bashar Assad's embattled regime to snuff out a 6-month-old uprising, witnesses and the U.N. human rights office said Friday.
