Report: Syrian forces kill 8 after prayers

AMMAN - Syrian security forces shot dead eight protesters during attacks on pro-democracy demonstrations across the country on Friday, the Local Coordination Committees activists' group said.
The organization said it had the names of two protesters killed in Syria's commercial hub of Aleppo, one in the city of Homs, three in suburbs of the capital Damascus and two in the northwestern province of Idlib on the border with Turkey.
Syrian President Bashar Assad's forces, backed by tanks, stormed several towns this week in Idlib, where protests have intensified.
