Syrian security forces leave main Deraa mosque

DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Syrian security forces pulled out from the main Omari mosque Thursday in the center of the city of Deraa where six people were killed, a Reuters witness said.

Several thousand people later converged on mosque to celebrate its “liberation,” setting off fireworks and honking car horns.
