Thousands of villagers from southern Syrian towns converged on a town near the city of Daraa on Friday and chanted slogans demanding the overthrow of President Bashar al-Assad, two witnesses said.

They said villagers, prevented from entering the besieged Daraa, which remains encircled by tanks after it was stormed nearly two weeks ago, flocked to Tafas, 12 km (8 miles), to the northwest. Protesters were gathering in a square near the old mosque, carrying placards with the word "leave."
