BEIRUT - Syrian activists published a video on Friday showing the bloodstained bodies of 15 young men who they said were among over 200 killed in an alleged massacre in central Hama province.
It showed corpses with faces or shirts drenched in blood, laid out in a row on blankets on a concrete floor."The martyrs of Tremseh, July 12, 2012. God is greatest," repeated a voice in the video, panning his camera over the bodies. Some had been shot in the abdomen.
If confirmed, the killings in Tremseh would be the worst atrocity of at least four massacres reported in Syria, where a 16-month-old uprising against President Bashar Assad has evolved into a war between rebel groups and state forces.
