AMMAN - Syrian forces shot dead at least four protesters and wounded dozens as they were coming out of a mosque in the town of Inkhil in the southern Deraa province on Friday, an activist said.

"We have names of four confirmed dead protesters in Inkhil and reports of heavy firing on demonstrations by the security forces across Deraa's countryside," Abdallah Aba Zaid, a prominent local activist, told Reuters.

Syria has expelled most independent media since the unrest began, making it difficult to verify reports from the country.
