More than 1.2 million Syrians joined anti-regime protests in the northern city of Hama and Deir Ezzor in the east on Friday, the head of the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

"More than 1.2 million people marched: in Deir Ezzor there were more than 550,000, and in Hama more than 650,000," Rami Abdel Rahman said, adding that the security forces were notable by their absence during the protests.
