Amateur video of Syrian security abuses


Telegraph.co.uk

Unverified amateur video has emerged of Syrian security services firing on protesters in the city of Homs and beating protesters in Banias.

6:33PM BST 15 Apr 2011

The first amateur video posted on a social website on Friday shows a crowd of Syrians running in Homs, the scene of recent crackdowns by the President Bashar al-Assad’s regime, as gunshots in the background.

The other video posted on a social website shows Syrian security forces beating protesters while they are tied up and lying on the ground in the coastal city of Banias.

President Bashar al-Assad is battling a wave of protests across his tightly-controlled state in which rights groups say more than 200 people have been killed.

The demonstrations for greater freedoms have swept Syria for weeks despite a fierce security crackdown and vague promises of reform.
