BEIRUT- Dozens of Syrian protesters ran through streets of the Damascus district of Midan after midday prayers on Friday calling for the overthrow of President Bashar Assad, witnesses said.

They said the protest was broken up within minutes by plain-clothed security forces. Al Jazeera television showed footage of people marching and then running, shouting for "the overthrow of the regime."
