Locals growing concern with Syria violence

Posted: Updated:
TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Worshippers at the Islamic center of Tucson say they are concerned for friends and family who live in the Middle East because of the ongoing violence in Syria. Those we spoke with say at the center say they are praying daily for the safety of everyone in the middle of all the violence.

At the Babylon Market in Tucson, which specializes in Middle Eastern and international foods, the store owner says shoppers cannot help but to discuss their concern for the violence happening in Syria.

Many people we spoke with at Babylon Market are not actually from Syria but from neighboring countries. Yet, they say it is hard to watch the violence happening there every single day.

Almost everyone we spoke with say they believe the United States and other countries need to intervene in the situation before more innocent people are killed.
