The UN says 35 hundred civilians have been killed in Syria and despite that number, an LU Political Science Expert says there will be no western intervention. Laure Paquette says the western world is concerned with the financial crisis in Europe. Syria's leader Bashar Assad says he has stopped attacking civilians and is only targeting Al Qaeda but Paquette says now it seems everyone who opposes him is a member of the terrorist group.
Police have a man in custody after a truck ended up in the McIntyre River late last night. Staff Sgt. Frank Earley says they're still not sure who the driver of the truck was. A man was found in the truck and is in jail for intoxication. Earley says they're not sure if there was another person in the vehicle or not.
