Syrian forces killed six people on Saturday as they pressed on with a crackdown on dissent, activists said.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said five people had been killed in the Bab Amro district of Homs during a sweep by the army and security forces on Saturday. A 45-year-old man was shot dead by security forces at a checkpoint in the northern province of Idlib, it added.
