Deputy Mike Traxler views flooded homes in Vicksburg, Miss., Wednesday, May 18,  2011. Floodwaters from the Mississippi river are expected to crest in Vicksburg on Thursday.   Some of the worst flooding is in the area from Vicksburg northeast to Yazoo City, along the Yazoo River. The Yazoo Backwater Levee north of Vicksburg connects with the main Mississippi River levee. The Corps of Engineers officials had predicted that at least a foot of water could pour over the top of the levee, flooding tens of thousands of more acres of farmland in the lower Mississippi Delta.

Syrian citizens shopping at Hamidiyah popular market, in Damascus, Syria, on Wednesday May 18, 2011. The Syrian opposition called for a general strike Wednesday to protest the regime but the appeal seemed to go largely unheeded. Schools, shops and other businesses were open in the capital, Damascus, and other Syrian cities amid a tight security presence. Syria's president said the country's security forces have made mistakes during the uprising against his regime, blaming poorly trained police officers at least in part for a crackdown that has killed more than 850 people over the past two months.
