AMMAN - Syrian security forces killed nine people on Friday as protesters called on the Arab League to suspend Damascus's membership in response to continued violence, activists said.

Local activists in Homs, which has suffered the highest death toll of any Syrian province since an uprising against President Bashar Assad broke out in March, said security forces killed seven civilians and one defecting soldier.

The British-based Syrian Organization for Human Rights said another man was killed in the northern province of Idlib.
