AMMAN - Syrian security forces shot dead at least five protesters on Friday and wounded dozens when they fired live ammunition to disperse protests against President Bashar Assad after Friday prayers, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Among those killed was a 14 year-old protester in the southern city of Deraa. The rest of the deaths occurred in the Damascus suburb of Erbin, the central city of Homs and the countryside of the city of Hama to the north, said the Observatory.
