Video footage released on social media show anti-government protests in Syria have spread to a southern village and a Damascus suburb.
One clip on YouTube shows several hundred villagers in Samnin chanting "Freedom!" while another shows dozens gathered in Hajar Aswad neighborhood of the capital.
Syrian activists who reported the protests say they took place Monday evening. The activists spoke on condition of anonymity fearing reprisals. The videos' authenticity could not be independently confirmed.
A deadly government crackdown in the southern city of Daraa left seven people dead in three days of unrest that started on Friday.
Elsewhere, protests by small groups of Syrians _ inspired by uprisings across the Arab world _ have been quickly suppressed.
