Syrian security forces kill 40 protesters

AMMAN - Security forces killed at least 40 civilians on Friday in attacks on demonstrations calling for international protection for Syria's pro-democracy protesters, activists said.
Most of the killings were in the main cities of Hama, where the security presence has been heavy since a military assault two months ago, and in Homs, where the army and militiamen loyal to President Bashar Assad have been raiding residential districts to put down protests and a nascent armed insurgency.
