At least four people were killed when security forces opened fire on anti-government protesters in a suburb of the capital Damascus.

Witnesses said thousands of people demonstrated to demand reforms in cities across the country. Many videos purporting to show the violence that erupted have been uploaded to the internet.

One incident in particular appears to show heavy gunfire on a crowd in the countryside in the south.
