Anti-government demonstrators chanted "God, Syria, freedom" at the funeral of a fellow protester in the southern Syrian city of Deraa. The protesters at Monday's funeral added to the chant, "The people want the overthrow of corruption," Reuters reported. Black-uniformed security forces sporting assault rifles oversaw the proceedings. It was the fourth day of anti-government demonstrations in Deraa; five protesters have been killed. Syrians also demonstrated Monday in the town of Jassem, according to reports citing activists.
