Thousands of Syrians have been protesting in several cities across the country.

The UN's been holding an emergency meeting in Geneva to discuss the continuing crackdown.

This footage is said to show protesters being fired on by security forces on Monday in Homs. They had converged on the city square to welcome a UN fact-finding mission.

Activists say ten people were killed across the country.
