DEARBORN (WWJ) - A Southeast Michigan family from Syria is appealing for the U.S. to help evacuate their daughter who is trapped in the war-torn country.
American-born, 11-year-old Sara Alouh has not been heard from since the beginning of democratic protests and clashes with government troops.
The girl’s father, Ahamad Alouh of Flint, said Sara is with her grandparents in Syria, where their home in Dara’a was destroyed by tanks.

Many people were asking themselves, after the Homs residents start their Sit-in on 4/18/2011, what did it take for this to happen? There’s a great BBC news article of what it took for residents of Homs to decide that enough was enough (http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-13114132).
Essentially about a week before the Homs uprising, the Syrian Security Forces had detained a Tribal Leader from Homs called Sheikh Badr Abu Moussa. Then on 4/17/11 they announced they would be releasing him and giving him back to his people.
What happened next was what was most shocking. Yes they returned him, but they returned him deceased and with numerous signs of torture. One witness stated: "His beard was burned and he died under torture in one of the security branches in Homs, most likely the military security branch."
