BEIRUT - Thirteen bodies were found dumped on the street in the Syrian city of Homs on Saturday with gunshots to the head and blood drenching the pavement, a video by activists showed.

"We've discovered a massacre today in Deir Baalba neighborhood. Look at this, Muslims. Look at this, Arabs," a man shouted as he walked towards the corpses, thrown on their backs or face down in pools of blood.

The victims, all young or middle-aged men, had their hands tied behind their back. Some were blindfolded. Activists said they couldn't tell who they were or why they were killed.
