Syria death toll is at 900?

(DP-News – Agencies )

SYRIA- the number of civilians killed in the clashes between the anti-government activists and the police has exceeded 900. Syrian forces opened fire on a funeral procession for slain anti-govnt protesters , pushing the number of people reported killed in a two-month uprising to more than 900 and making it one of the deadliest of the Arab Spring.

AP reported “Excluding Libya - where battles between Moammar Gadhafi's forces and his opponents have left possibly thousands dead since February - Syria's death toll is now higher than any country that has been gripped by uprisings.”



During Egypt's 18-day revolt that toppled long-serving President Hosni Mubarak on Feb. 11, at least 846 Egyptians died.

In Tunisia, which sparked the region's upheavals, an estimated 219 people were killed before President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali stepped down in January.
A crackdown by authorities in Yemen has left more than 150 protesters dead, opposition groups say.

The number killed in Bahrain, Oman and other places shaken by unrest is far lower.

Syria's killings also stand out because of its relative small population: about 22 million people compared with 80 million in Egypt. Tunisia has about 10.5 million people.

Most of Syria's deaths have occurred on Fridays when tens of thousands of people march to the streets from mosques following traditional noon prayers. Syrian government repeatedly has blamed the unrest on armed gangs rather than anti-government protesters.
