AMMAN - At least three people were killed on Friday when Syrian army helicopters fired rockets at the southeastern Damascus neighbourhood of Saida Zeinab, scene of fighting between rebels and President Bashar Assad's forces, opposition activists said.

"One rocket hit a three story building. I got through to my relatives in Saida Zainab and could hear the sound of the bombardment on the phone," Reem, one of the activists, told Reuters by telephone from Damascus.
