ANKARA, Turkey (AP) — The Syrian-American community here in Middle Tennessee is following the fighting in Syria closely.

NATO will hold emergency talks tomorrow to discuss Syria's downing of a Turkish jet fighter on Friday, but the alliance isn’t expected to take military action even if it finds Syria at fault.

Meanwhile the killing continues. Some 40 people were reported killed in Syria yesterday in new clashes between rebels and government troops. Opposition activists say the conflict has killed 14,000 people, mostly civilians, over the past 15 months.
