AMMAN - Government forces shot dead at least four demonstrators in southern Syria on Tuesday when crowds demanding the removal of President Bashar Assad left mosques after prayers marking the end of the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, residents and activists said.

The four, including a 13-year-old boy, were killed when forces fired at demonstrators streaming out of mosques in the towns of al-Hara and Inkhil in southern Deraa province after 'Id' prayers to mark the feast celebrating the end of Ramadan.
