AMMAN - Syrian forces killed at least two unarmed demonstrators on Sunday when they opened fire on a night rally in the eastern city of Deir al-Zor, a witness said.

"There are two bodies on the ground and no one can reach them. There is still gunfire and people are fleeing the scene," the witness told Reuters from the Old Airport district of the tribal city.

Deir al-Zor, the center of Syria's oil production, has been witnessing rallies that have attracted up to 4,000 people each night since security forces killed four pro-democracy protesters on Friday, residents said.
