Syrian mourners attacked by security forces(Aljazeera)


Government security forces and others in plain clothes have opened fire on mourners in Homs killing at least two people and injuring more than 20 as they returned from massive funerals, a witness told Al Jazeera.

More than 40,000 people had gathered in Homs for the funerals of protesters killed in the city on Friday and were walking back from the cemetery in Tal al Nasser on the outskirts of the city when they were fired on without warning, the witness said.

The sound of gunfire and cries to help the wounded were audible over the phone as Al Jazeera spoke to the eyewitness.

The wounded have been taken to private clinics and homes as people feared the secret police would raid and arrest the injured from the main state hospital, he said, as they had done in previous such attacks.

Al Jazeera cannot verify reports from Syria because of restrictions placed on reporting by the Syrian government.
