Syrian forces kill 3 people in Damascus

DAMASCUS - Syrian forces shot dead three people in the Damascus district of Barzeh on Saturday at a mass funeral of pro-democracy protesters killed a day earlier, a local human rights campaigner said.
Witnesses said mourners were chanting "People want the fall of the regime" and "Bashar, you coward, take your soldiers to Golan," in reference to the Golan Heights where the frontier with Israel has been quiet since a 1974 ceasefire.
