Two killed in rare anti-govt protests in Syria

Anti-corruption protests have occurred in the Druze-majority province over the past few years, with tensions simmering between residents and the Syrian government led by President Assad

At least two people including a policeman were killed and seven people were injured in a rare anti-govt protest over rising prices in Syria.

Protests escalated in the southern Syrian city of Sweida after protesters burned down the governor's residence.

Anti-government demonstrations are rare in Syria where President Bashar Assad stamped out a pro-democracy uprising over a decade ago.

Assad survived the resulting civil war but the conflict has plunged Syria into poverty, coupled with a food security and energy crisis.
