Thousands of Syrians chant 'freedom' at Daraa mosque

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


A Reuters witness said the crowds 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. (Reuters)
