Syria: regime-change protests continue


Protests in Syria against President Bashar al-Assad have shown no sign of letting up despite a fierce response from security forces.

A video posted on the internet appears to show them opening fire on demonstrators in Latakia.

There were similar protests reported in cities across the country, a repetition of unrest that has been growing over the past four weeks.

For the first time the discontent showed its face on the streets of the capital Damascus.

A video was posted on the internet purporting to show protesters openly chanting for the fall of the regime.

Witnesses say bus-loads of secret police had been deployed.

Assad’s promises of reform including a salary increase for public sector workers, and to look again at the 48 year old emergency law that bans gatherings of more than five people have fallen on deaf ears.
