Syrian activists said Saturday that at least six civilians and four rebels were killed in a village near Damascus when soldiers loyal to President Bashar al-Assad pursued Army defectors in the area. A British Syrian-rights groups also reported 10 dead, but said that all of those killed were defectors. Violence in Syria continues two weeks after a U.N.-backed ceasefire did little to bring peace to the country rocked by 13 months of internal conflict. The killings Saturday took place in the village of Bakha north of Damascus.
