At least 62 bodies of murdered residents were found in a Sunni neighborhood in the Syrian city of Banias, AFP quoted the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights as saying on Saturday.

"We have identified 62 citizens by their names, photos, or videos, including 14 children, and the number could rise because there are dozens of citizens who are still missing," the Observatory said.

The Observatory accuses Assad forces of committing the massacre.
