    Activists in Syria are claiming the largest turnout yet against the regime of President Bashar al-Assad, in which 11 people were killed at the hands of security forces.

    The deaths occurred in Homs, Damascus and Latakia on Friday, activists said.

    Al Jazeera's Rula Amin reports from Damascus, the Syrian capital, on how Fridays prompt a host of demonstrations, both for and against the president.
