AMMAN - Syrian security forces fired live rounds at a pro-democracy demonstration in the Damascus suburb of Saqba on Saturday, a witness said.

"A large demonstration calling for the overthrow of the regime had been going on since the afternoon. It felt like the whole of Saqba took to the streets. Security forces entered in the evening and started firing," said the witness, a resident of Saqba, speaking by telephone from the suburb of 40,000.
