It has been another day of violence and protests in Syria, despite the promise made by President Assad on Monday, to instigate wide-ranging reforms.

Syria has banned most foreign journalists during the crackdown of the past three months but Newsnight's Sue Lloyd Roberts has managed to spend a week undercover meeting activists in the capital Damascus.
