AMMAN - Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces shot dead on Friday at least 13 anti-Assad protesters whose numbers were apparently swelled by the killing of former Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi, activists and residents said.

Most of the killings were in the central city of Homs and in Hama to the north, scene of some of the largest military operations in a crackdown on the seven month uprising, where a nascent insurgent movement has also emerged, they said.
