AMMAN - Syrian forces killed seven civilians on Tuesday in raids near Damascus and in Homs province, activists said, both centers of an uprising against the rule of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Armed groups also shot dead two members of the security forces, Syrian state media and an activists group reported.

In a separate incident, troops defused a bomb planted under a crude oil pipeline near the city of Homs, Syrian state news agency SANA said.

Assad has responded to six months of unrest with a military crackdown in which the United Nations says 2,700 people have died, including 100 children.
