BEIRUT - Activists said pro-government militia men and security forces killed at least 78 people, including children, in Syria's central province of Hama on Wednesday.

Some of those killed in the village of Mazraat al-Qabeer were stabbed to death, the activists said, and at least 12 bodies had been burned.

The killings came less than two weeks after a massacre in the Syrian town of Houla, in which some 108 people were killed, nearly half of them children.
