Syria security forces ‘open fire at Kurd’s funeral’

At least 14 people have been killed in Syria after security forces opened fire on mourners as they attended funerals of people who died on Friday.

Six were killed in the north as they attended the funeral of a prominent Syrian Kurdish opposition figure.

Mishaal al-Tammo was shot dead by masked gunmen in a targeted killing.

About 50,000 people attended the funeral in his home town of Qamishli, which turned into a protest against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad.

The BBC’s Jim Muir in Beirut says that it was probably the biggest demonstration the Kurdish areas of the north have witnessed since the uprising broke out nearly seven months ago.
