Souvenir plates with portraits of Syrian President Bashar Assad are seen displayed at a shop window for sale, in the old city of Damascus, Syria, on Saturday Sept. 3, 2011. Activists say Syrian security forces cracking down on a growing uprising have killed two people after storming a northern village. The security raid is part of operations to crush almost six months of demonstrations against the country's authoritarian leadership. The U.N. estimates some 2,200 Syrians have been killed since March. (AP Photo/Muzaffar Salman) less
