BEIRUT - At least 30 people were killed at the weekend in clashes between residents in Homs in the first reported factional fighting since protests against President Bashar Assad erupted in March, a human rights group said.

Rami Abdelrahman, head of Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said on Monday that clashes between pro- and anti-Assad residents started on Saturday afternoon after the bodies of three government supporters, kidnapped last week, were returned to their relatives dismembered.

"At least 30 civilians were killed ... they fell after civil fighting between pro- and anti-regime (residents) started on Saturday," the Observatory said in statement.
