This image made from video provided by Deir Press Network and accessed by AP video on Thursday, Aug. 23, 2012 purports to show smoke rising after a bombing in Deir El-Zour, Syria. Across the country, scores of people died in shelling and clashes, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees. The bloodshed coincided with the departure from the Syrian capital on Thursday of the last of the United Nations military observers after their mission headed by former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan, meant to help end the bloodshed in Syria, failed.
