Mourners of Syrian protesters chant for freedom

DERAA, Syria, March 19 (Reuters) - Thousands of mourners chanted slogans demanding freedom and accusing Syrian authorities of treason at the funeral of two protesters killed by security forces in the southern city of Deraa, a Reuters witness said.

“God, Syria, Freedom. Whoever kills his own people is a traitor,” the mourners shouted as they marched behind the coffins of Wissam Ayyash and Mahmoud al-Jawabra. (Reporting by Suleiman al-Khalidi)
