AMMAN - About 10,000 Syrians marched in support of Deraa from the old Midan district of Damascus on Friday in the biggest protest in the capital since the mass democracy movement began six weeks ago, rights campaigners said.

The protest, which started from Midan and surrounding districts and grew, was dispersed by security forces firing tear gas at protesters around Mujtahed hospital near the main Umayyad Square, they said.
