(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) United Nations monitors who were attacked by angry crowds in Lattakia on Tuesday (June 12) returned to Damascus on Wednesday (June 13). One UN car had smashed windows, dented panels, broken headlights and damaged wing mirrors. The UN Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) said that angry crowds threw stones and metal rods at UN observers as they tried to reach the Syrian town of Haffeh on Tuesday, and three UN vehicles were deliberately fired upon as they left the area. UNMIS has been trying to reach Haffeh since June 7 but has been impeded by the ongoing violence in the area.
