AMMAN (Reuters) – The killing of Libya’s Muammar Gaddafi fueled demonstrations across Syria after Friday prayers that called for the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad, braving a heavier than normal security presence, activists and residents said.

“Gaddafi is finished. It is your turn now Bashar!” shouted demonstrators in the town of Maaret al-Numaan in the northwestern province of Idlib, according to one witness.
