BEIRUT - Syrian forces killed at least seven people when they opened fire to disperse protests against Syrian President Bashar Assad after Friday prayers in Damascus and Homs, activists said.

Rami Abdel-Rahman, head of the British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, said three people were killed in the Damascus suburb of Douma and four in Bab Sbaa, a district in the central city of Homs where Syrian troops fought army deserters and gunmen last week.
