World media 'incites Syrian violence'

It is estimated that 15 people died after Syrian police opened fire on protesters in the city of Daa'ra on Wednesday and now the government says it would discuss lifting the state of emergency which has been in place since 1963, and would bring about reforms to meet the requests of the protesters. Dr Bouthaina Shaaban, an adviser to Syria's President Assad, explains her view that the Western media has incited the violence.
