Report: Nearly 40 killed in Syria protests

At least 38 protesters were killed by security forces during massive demonstrations on Friday across Syria, in one of the bloodiest days since pro-democracy protests erupted in mid-March, witnesses and activists told AFP by telephone.


The toll has been steadily rising throughout the day, according to the sources reached by AFP in Nicosia, with early reports speaking of at least 15 dead and that figure more than doubling by the late afternoon. (AFP)
