Syrian snipers kill 5 mourners at funeral: activists

Syrian forces shot dead five mourners on Tuesday when they fired at a funeral for villagers killed the day before in the countryside near Hama in one of the largest military assaults against pro-democracy protests, local activists said.

The five were shot dead by security police snipers from the rooftop of a public school and a municipal water tank in the town of Kfar Nubouzeh, when hundreds of mourners began chanting slogans demanding the downfall of President Bashar al-Assad, activists in contact with residents said.
