Security forces in Syria are said to have killed at least 15 civilians as anti-regime demonstrations were staged across the country on the first day of the Muslim feast marking the end of the Hajj
It was the fourth straight day of deadly violence since Syria agreed to an Arab League peace blueprint aimed at ending nearly eight months of bloodshed.
At least 10 of the deaths reported on Sunday occurred in Homs, 140km north of the capital Damascus, where a main district has been under tank bombardment since Tuesday according to activists.
Other casualties fell in Hama and Idlib, according to the Syrian Revolution General Commission (SRGC).
