Are moderate Syrians being heard?


With continuing violence in Syria it is easy to forget that when it started more than a year ago, the uprising began as a peaceful protest.

As Lyse Doucet has found on her most recent trip to Syria, voices of moderation are being drowned out by the escalation in hostilities.

"We all want to stop the killing, and build a Syria for all Syrians," moderate political activist Rima Dali told her.

"We look for hope, day in, day out."

Lyse Doucet reports on those, like Rima Dali, still calling for a peaceful resolution to the country's troubles.
