Syrian forces kill 4 in mosque attack: residents

DAMASCUS (Reuters) - Syrian security forces killed four people on Wednesday in an attack on the Omari mosque in the southern city of Deraa, site of six days of protests, residents said.

Protesters calling for political freedoms and an end to corruption had said earlier that they were going to remain in the mosque until their demands were met.
