'Protesters killed' at mosque in city of Deraa in Syria

At least five people have reportedly died after security forces fired on protesters outside a mosque in the southern Syrian city of Deraa.

The building has been the focus of anti-government demonstrations since Friday.

Amateur video posted on a social networking site appears to show the attack, and the wounded being treated inside the mosque.
