Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton on Friday warned that time is running short for President Bashar al-Assad’s government to make reforms and transition to a democracy in Syria, according to CNN.

"It is absolutely clear that the Syrian government is running out of time. There isn't any question about that," Clinton said during a news conference in Lithuania on Friday.

Her comments come after the latest reports of attacks on protesters a day earlier in Aleppo, Syria's second-largest city, and just as activists prepare to renew their protests after Friday prayers.

 

"We regret the loss of life and we regret the violence, but this choice is up to the Syrian government. And right now we're looking for actions, not words, and we haven't seen enough of that," Clinton said.
