    Many protesters have died at the hands of security forces in the southern Syrian city of Daraa.

    But tension there seems to have been significantly reduced after a local delegation met President Bashar al-Assad.

    They say the president promised serious reforms, including to lift the emergency law.

    Al Jazeera's Rula Amin has this exclusive report from Daraa, where a peaceful protest was held on Friday.
