Thousands of protesters in towns across Syria defied a brutal government crackdown on Friday to commemorate the notorious 1982 massacre in the city of Hama that killed tens of thousands. 

In Hama's central neighbourhood of Junub al-Malaab, security forces opened fire on demonstrators, killing at least one and wounding three others, activists reported.

Activists posted this video from there.
