Shocking video footage has emerged from the Syrian city of Homs in which a young man filming gunfire in the streets appears to be shot dead in cold blood by the sniper he zooms in on. A clip circulating on YouTube begins with a male voice describing "someone shooting at citizens in Karm al-Sham on 1 July without any reason and no demonstrations." The cameraman is filming from an upper floor against a background of slogans being chanted. Jerky images of the street and balconies are followed by a blurred glimpse of a man in olive green, standing in the shadows, carefully moving forward and raising and firing a weapon – followed by a single shot, moaning, and distraught voices pleading for help. The cameraman's identity is not known. Foreign journalists and human rights groups are largely banned from Syria and it has not been possible to authenticate the video. Rough Translation:Camera guy: The forces are attacking the fellow locals in "alsham" at the first of july 2011 without any reason.Camera guy:There is no protesting or anything.Two guys: (talking inside the house)Camera guy: (Gets shot)First guy: calls the camera guy's name.second guy: The bullet hit him in the head ?!First guy: (shaking up) uhh in the head , head uhSecond guy: Oh my god oh my godSecond guy: please god (camera sounds keeps cutting up can't tell)First guy: (voice shaking up) More..Get back get back go back move (sounds like he was dragging the body while calling the seconds guy's name)Second guy: Yes? (then asks something about filming)
