More footage from Busr al-Harir shows demonstrators continuing to call for a change in the regime. The video, which could not be independently verified by Reuters shows demonstrators chanting as soldiers drive past . Then the sound of gunfire. A man lies on the street in a pool of blood. He is carried away. Video from Lattakia shows a funeral march for a protester killed on Friday. Human rights groups say more than 1,100 civilians have been killed as they call for the end of President Bashar al-Assad's 11-year rule.. Damascus has banned most foreign correspondents from the country, making it difficult to verify accounts of events. Deborah Lutterbeck, Reuters
