Syrian protesters fired upon

Al Jazeera obtains exclusive footage of a Syrian protest as it is fired upon.

    With the government severely restricting press freedoms, getting images and footage of protests in Syria has been difficult.

    Al Jazeera obtained this dramatic footage from one of Friday's demonstrations - this one in Harasta, where security forces appeared to open fire on protesters, just as they had done in several other cities and towns in a crackdown that claimed at least 75 lives.

    Al Jazeera's Imran Khan reports.
