At least 128 people were killed Monday in cities across Syria, most of whom fell in the restive western city of Homs where Syrian troops continued their bombardment of opposition-held neighborhoods as they have done for weeks.

Activists discovered a mass grave of over 60 young men, Al Jazeera reported. The bodies were found with their throats slit, according to the report.

Syrian troops also targeted mourners at a cemetery in Homs, activists said according to Al Jazeera.

The deaths followed a nationwide referendum on a new a constitution, which the Syrian government said passed with 89 percent of votes in favor, and which Western nations and the Syrian opposition dismissed as a farce.
