Three killed in shooting near Izra'a, witness says

AMMAN - At least three people were killed when Syrian forces fired at hundreds of mourners trying to attend funerals of pro-democracy protesters near the town of Izra'a in southern Syria on Saturday, two witnesses said.
They said hundreds of mourners, dispersed by live ammunition outside Izra'a, were shot at when they approached a checkpoint at the Sheikh Maskeen road juncture as they headed back to the southern border city of Deraa.
