Shots fill the air in what is purportedly Douma, Syria. And smoke rises above the Damascus suburb. Reuters cannot independently verify the content of the video, posted Tuesday amid a supposed ceasefire between President Bashar al-Assad's forces and rebel fighters and protesters. This video captures a funeral for nine people reportedly killed by security forces in the northwestern province of Idlib. The truce has been in effect nearly two weeks, but the United Nations confirmed Monday that the ceasefire is not being respected. Lindsey Parietti, Reuters
