Activists say Syrian security forces have shot dead eight people, including a 16-year-old boy, during anti-government protests.


The toll was reported Friday by the Local Coordination Committees, a group that documents the protests, and by rights activist Mustafa Osso.


Three people were killed in the central city of Homs, two in the eastern town of Deir el-Zour and two in the Damascus suburb of Harasta. The 16-year-old died in the southern village of Dael.


Thousands of people poured into the streets throughout Syria after Friday prayers calling for the downfall of President Bashar Assad's regime.


Human rights activists say more than 1,400 Syrians have been killed and 10,000 detained.
