Anti-Assad protests enter their seventh month


Thousands of Syrians took to the streets once again on Friday as protests against President Bashar al-Assad entered their seventh month.

Troops killed at least 17 people during yesterday’s demonstrations, according to the London-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights.

An anti-Assad group calling itself the Shaam news network posted this amateur footage online in what it says shows Friday’s demonstrations.

euronews has been unable to independently verify the videos because foreign journalists are banned from Syria.

The United Nations estimates 2,600 people have been killed since the Syrian uprising began.
