Saturday, 25 Jun 2011 05:04 PM

Syrian security forces shot dead five civilians during funerals that turned into protests against President Bashar al-Assad and in raids on homes in protest areas, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

Two protesters were killed in Kiswa, 10 miles south of Damascus, during funerals of several protesters killed on Friday. Three other civilians were killed during house-to-house arrests in the Barzeh district of Damascus and in the town of Quseir, west of Homs city, close to the Lebanon border.

"These regions have been seeing growing protests and the regime is using force to prevent them from spreading," Rami Abdel Rahman, head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights told Reuters.
