Syrian forces used nail bombs in order to scatter thousands of protesters Friday in a Damascus suburb, AFP reported according to activists.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said at least two dozen activists were injured when security forces in Douma fired nail bombs on protesters.

The use of nail bombs could not be independently verified due to the lack of access by foreign press in Syria.

Hundreds of thousands of protesters reportedly took to the streets in cities across Syria for some of the largest street demonstrations to have occurred yet in the ten-month uprising against Syrian President Bashar Assad.
