AMMAN - Security forces shot dead four people who shouted slogans against President Bashar al-Assad at a rally organized by the authorities in the city of Hama on Sunday to show popular anger at an Arab League decision to suspend Syria, local activists said.

"Security forces were leading public workers and students into Orontes square when groups broke away and started shouting 'the people want the fall of the regime'. They escaped into the alleyways but were followed and four were killed." said one of the activists in Hama, 240 km north of Damascus.
