Today, United Nations officials say that Syrian authorities have agreed to allow some humanitarian access to four areas in the country. Those include Daraa, Deir el-Zour, Homs and Idlib, where government forces have for months launched bombardments and attacks on civilian neighborhoods. The move comes as Syria said it would ban more than a dozen Western diplomats. Activists with the Local Coordination Committees report more than 40 people were killed in government strikes on Monday. The Syrian Observatory for Human rights said Rebels killed more than 100 government soldiers since last Friday. As violence continues on the streets in Syria, attacks are also taking place online, as both government agencies and activists turn increasingly to the Internet.
