Syrian security forces opened fire on protesters in a Damascus suburb Thursday as Arab League monitors arrived, an opposition activist group said.
More than 20 demonstrators were injured in the Grand Mosque area of Douma as the observers arrived at the city's municipal building, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.
The Local Coordination Committees of Syria, another opposition activist network, said two people in Douma were among 10 killed in Syria on Thursday. It is not clear how and where those deaths occurred.
The incident comes as Arab League monitors worked in the opposition epicenter of Homs, arrived in the restive cities of Daraa, Idlib, and Hama, and visited the Damascus area.FULL STORY
