BEIRUT (Reuters) - A second Syrian lawmaker told al-Jazeera television on Saturday he was resigning from parliament in protest at the killing of demonstrators.


Lawmaker Khalil al-Rifaei joined his colleague Naser al-Hariri, both representatives of the troubled city of Deraa, and announced his resignation on air, saying it was because of the killings of pro-democracy protesters.

"Security solutions do not work," Rifaei said.
