AMMAN - Syrian forces killed one protester and wounded five on Saturday when they opened fire at pro-democracy demonstrators in the eastern border town of Albu Kamal near Iraq's Sunni heartland, activists and residents said.

"Military Intelligence patrols fired on a crowd at the main square. More people are now gathering there. This is a tribal province and inhabitants do not take killings lightly," said one of the activists, who gave the name of the dead protester as Hayan Mohsen al-Bahr.
