Syrian Protesters Square Off, Settle In

Syria's Arab Spring continues into the summer, but after 16 weeks, the government and the demonstrators appear to have reached a stalemate. The uprising presents the greatest challenge to the 40-year rule of one family and one party, in a complex country that is pivotal to stability in the region. Guest host Susan Stamberg speaks with NPR's Deborah Amos, one of a small group of western journalists being allowed to report from Syria, under government supervision.
