BEIRUT - More than 60 bodies were taken to several hospitals in Syria's central city of Homs on Monday, activists in the city said.

Circumstances of their deaths were not immediately clear but activists and residents in several neighborhoods reported a spate of kidnappings since Sunday, a tactic used in recent sectarian killings in the city which has been the hotbed of armed opposition to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said pro-Assad militiamen kidnapped and killed at least 34 people from anti-Assad districts on Monday. An activist in the city said at least 32 other bodies were taken to the national hospital in the early hours on Monday, including both supporters and opponents of Assad.
