EDIT CONTAINS 4:3 MATERIAL Video posted on a social media website show massive demonstrations in and around Syria's capital Damascus on Friday. Activists say Syrian forces shot dead at least 20 protesters in various place around the country. Demonstrations have been on-going for months in an attempt to overthrow President Bashar al-Assad, despite violent military crackdowns. On Saturday, funerals for some of the victims were held near Damascus. Large crowds carry coffins through the streets. Syrian authorities have barred most independent media from the country, making it difficult to verify events on the ground. Julie Noce, Reuters
