AMMAN - Syrian forces have killed at least twenty seven people in the last three days in an offensive to recapture the town of Rastan that has come under the control of army deserters, an activist's body said on Thursday.

The Local Coordination Committees said two of those killed were deserters and the rest were villagers in the central town, which has been under a tank and helicopter-backed assault by forces loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad since Tuesday.
