#Syria unrest: Wave of arrests follows protests

Syrian security forces have arrested dozens of people, hours after clashes at pro-democracy protests in several cities left at least seven people dead, activists say.

Most arrests came in the southern city of Deraa and the Damascus suburb of Duma, scene of the worst violence.

The BBC’s Lina Sinjab says protesters released from custody say that all those who were detained during the protests were brutally beaten, humiliated and branded traitors by the security forces, who accused them of links with foreign forces.
