AMMAN - Syrian security forces used live ammunition overnight on Saturday to disperse a pro-democracy protest by hundreds of people in a Sunni district of Latakia, causing scores of injuries and possible deaths, residents said.

One witness saw water trucks hosing down the scene in the Sleibeh district of the city of Latakia, Syria's main port, 330 km (210 miles) northwest of the capital Damascus.
