Syrian security troops kill 2 in Damascus suburb

Activists say security forces have killed more than 1,400 people across Syria since mid March.



Beirut: A Syrian human rights group says security forces have shot dead two anti-regime demonstrators and wounded eight in a Damascus suburb.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says the shooting occurred late Sunday night in the suburb of Hajar Aswad, where demonstrations against President Bashar Assad`s regime have been common.

The Local Coordination Committees, which track the protests in Syria, says there were also night protests in others areas, including the central city of Hama and the northwestern province of Idlib.

Activists say security forces have killed more than 1,400 people across Syria since the uprising against Assad began in mid March.

The regime disputes the toll, blaming "armed thugs" and foreign conspirators for the unrest.
