Syrian forces kill civilian, arrest leading Alawite
AMMAN - Syrian forces shot dead at least one civilian on Sunday in the coastal town of Jabla following a pro-democracy protest the previous night, a rights campaigner in contact with Jabla said.

In the restive city of Homs in central Syria, security forces arrested Mansour al-Ali, a prominent figure from the minority ruling Alawite sect, after he spoke out against the shooting by security forces of protesters demanding democratic change, another activist in Homs told Reuters.
