AMMAN - Syrian security forces opened fire on a demonstration against President Bashar Assad in Damascus, injuring five young men on Thursday, hours after the army overran the rebel stronghold of Baba Amro in the city of Homs, a witness said.
"We went out to prove that the occupation of Baba Amro will not put down the revolution in Syria ... I saw at least ten security police carrying AK-47s. They started firing and five of us fell," Abu Abdallah, one of the demonstrators, told Reuters from the district of Hajar al-Asswad.
