The security forces who came to Deraa told us 'Go buy bread from a bakery called Freedom. Let's see if it feeds you.'"
A witness said those seized were being gathered in schools and then transferred to detention centres.
Tonight in Homs, security forces reportedly opened fire on about 600 protesters in Homs near the Khalidiyyeh Mosque in the centre of the city, an eyewitness told Al Jazeera.

0550 GMT: The statement by Lieutenant-General Charles Bouchard, Commander of NATO’s operations, on the airstrike which allegedly killed the youngest son and three grandsons of Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi:
All NATO’s targets are military in nature and have been clearly linked to the Qadhafi regime’s systematic attacks on the Libyan population and populated areas. We do not target individuals. The strike was part of NATO’s coherent strategy to disrupt and destroy the command and control of those forces which have been attacking civilians.
I am aware of unconfirmed media reports that some of Qadhafi’s family members may have been killed. We regret all loss of life, especially the innocent civilians being harmed as a result of the ongoing conflict. NATO is fulfilling its UN mandate to stop and prevent attacks against civilians with precision and care --- unlike Qaddafi’s forces, which are causing so much suffering.

0520 GMT: The Secretary-General of NATO, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, has rejected Libyan leader Muammar Qaddafi's call for negotiations: “The Qaddafi regime continues to cause widespread suffering through its attacks on the Libyan population. Quite simply, this must stop. NATO remains firm --- we will continue our operation until the threat to the civilian population of Libya is removed.”
0510 GMT: An opposition website summarises developments in Misurata, Libya's third-largest city, on Sunday. It claims the main battle was in the east of the city, including the airport: "Freedom fighters managed to push Qaddafi forces back and they are now further away from the city on the eastern coastal road. However, quite a few freedom fighters died there.”
After the airport battle, the website says regime forces resumed bombardment of the city centre "with mortars, GRAD missiles and cluster bombs”.
The report concludes, “Misurata still lacks the most basic humanitarian needs (water, food, medicine, working sewage systems, phone networks)."
