At Least 120 Dead As Syrian Security Forces Attempt to Suppress Protesters

Syrian security forces shot at tens of thousands of people joining funeral processions Saturday after the bloodiest day of the monthlong uprising against President Bashar Assad. The death toll from two days of violence has risen to at least 120. Two lawmakers and a local religious leader have resigned in disgust over the killings.

Syria’s National Organization for Human Rights, said 112 people were killed Friday and at least 11 on Saturday.

Snipers wear yellow on their shoulders. Undercover agents on the street wear orange bracelets.

Protesters are wary of security forces and discrete pro-government gunmen known as “shabiha.”
