The Daily Star - Syria imposes death penalty for arming 'terrorists', December 20th 2011

DAMASCUS: Syrian President Bashar al-Assad has signed into effect a law imposing the death penalty on anyone arming "terrorists", state media said on Tuesday amid mounting clashes with rebel troops.
"The law provides for the death penalty for anyone providing weapons or helping to provide weapons intended for the carrying out of terrorist acts," the official SANA news agency said.
The Syrian authorities contend that nine-month-old protests are the work of "armed terrorists" not civilian demonstrators as maintained by Western governments and human rights groups.
