AMMAN - The death toll in an attack by Syrian government forces on a village in the province of Hama on Thursday is more than 200, opposition activists said.

The Revolution Leadership Council of Hama told Reuters that most of the dead in the village of Tremseh were civilians. It said the village had been attacked by helicopter gunships and tanks, and that pro-government militia men then moved in and carried out execution-style killings.
