AMMAN - Syrian forces shot dead at least eight protesters on Friday when they fired at demonstrations in the cities of Hama and Homs, activists and residents said.

They said protesters were again calling for international protection after NATO said it would end its mission in Libya, which was instrumental in bringing down Muammar Gaddafi.

Similar rallies broke out all across Syria after the main weekly prayers, the activists said, adding that protests have been boosted by Gaddafi's death.

Gaddafi had close links with Syrian President Bashar Assad.
