Syrian forces attack mosque, 30 feared dead

AMMAN - Syrian forces killed up to 30 worshipers on Tuesday as they converged on a mosque to perform Ramadan evening prayers in a village northwest of the city of Hama, opposition activists said.
"Troops and shabbiha (militia loyal to President Bashar Assad) left the roadblock on the edge of Shariaa and crossed the main road and began firing automatic rifles at the worshipers as they were entering the mosque," Jamil al-Hamwi, one of the activists, said by telephone from al-Ghab Plain."We have confirmed the names for 15 bodies and there is a similar number estimated still to be collected from the streets," Hamwi, who uses a pseudonym for safety reasons, said.
