Syrians continue protests amid violence

5 years ago40 views

Thousands of protesters hit the streets in cities across Syria on Friday, billed as a "day of martyrdom", to demand political reforms.

However, gunmen in plainclothes attacked the crowd and fired live ammunition, killing a girl and injuring many others.

The Syrian state news agency accused "armed gang" for the firing, while the government has ordered an inquiry into the incident.
