Dozens killed in Syrian clashes

It has been a busy weekend in Islam, dozens of people were killed everywhere in Muslim countries.
So peaceful is this religion.

At least 31 people were killed across Syria in a series of shootings on Sunday, Syrian activists say.

The UK-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) they included 14 civilians and 17 security personnel.

Seven civilians died in the central city of Homs and the troops were killed in clashes with mutinous soldiers refusing to shoot on protesters, they said. There is no confirmation.

Nearly 3,000 people have died since the protests began in March, the UN says.

"It was like a war scene in Homs where blasts and sound bombs were heard all over town, with heavy machine-guns also being fired," a statement from the Local Coordination Committees (LCC), which organises protests on the ground, said.
