This image made from amateur video released by the Ugarit News and accessed Thursday, April 12, 2012, purports to show Syrians holding Syrian revolutionary flags during a demonstration in Deir el-Zour, Syria. A fragile cease-fire brokered by the U.N. took hold in Syria on Thursday with regime forces apparently halting widespread attacks on the opposition. But there were reports of scattered violence and the government defied demands to pull troops back to barracks.  The government met demonstrations with a harsh crackdown, and more than 9,000 people have died since the beginning of the revolution, according to the U.N.
