More than 100 dead in Daraa, Al-Jazeera reports

Al-Jazeera television on Friday reported that more than 100 corpses were seen on the streets of Daraa.

“In Daraa, more than 100 bodies have been seen on the roads and more than 150 [people] are missing,” an eyewitness told the TV station.

“Electricity is still cut and there is lack of water supplies and baby milk,” he added.

The eyewitness called on humanitarian organizations to save the people of Daraa.

“People from the villages around Daraa came to support the city but they were shot at by security forces.”

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime has been rocked by unprecedented protests since March 15 demanding reform. According to human rights activists, at least 453 civilians have been killed across Syria since protests first erupted.
