Crowds of Syrians have emerged from Friday prayers in mosques for more protests against President Bashar Assad.

Al-Jazeera reports 18 deaths after security forces cracked down.

The Syrian media speak about the killing of two soldiers by armed rebels in a small village 15 kilometres east of Damascus.

In the capital itself, demonstrators carried photos of comrades and relatives in jails and called for the release of all political prisoners. The march passed off without incident.
