DERAA, Syria - Thousands of Syrians chanted "freedom, revolution" in the center of the city of Deraa on Thursday despite a pledge by President Bashar al-Assad to consider reforms to Syria's authoritarian political system.

A Reuters witness said the crowd were continuing to pour into the old quarter of the city around the main Omari mosque, which security forces evacuated earlier after storming it on Wednesday and killing six people.
