It's Friday - time for another Syrian massacre

From Al Arabiya:
Syrian forces shot dead at least 14 people when they opened fire to break up anti-regime demonstrations that flared across the country after the weekly prayers, activists told AFP.

Ten people, including two children, were killed in separate shootings on protesters in the southern province of Daraa, while three were killed in the central city of Homs and one in a Damascus suburb, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

The shootings come a day after President Bashar Al Assad told the UN chief Ban Ki-moon that his security forces ended operations against civilians.
The number of dead is now at 22.
