Assad on slaughtering protesters: Mistakes were made

Syrian President Bashar Assad said Wednesday that the country’s security forces have made mistakes during the uprising against his regime and that thousands of police officers are receiving new training.

Assad’s comments were carried by the private Al-Watan daily on Wednesday. They came as a human rights activist said Syrian troops have used heavy machine-guns to strike a neighborhood in the central city of Homs.
