Activists: Syria blocks access to massacre site for UN

BEIRUT - The Syrian army prevented a team of United Nations monitors from entering the village of Mazraat al-Qubeir on Thursday following reports of the killings of at least 78 villagers by militants loyal to President Bashar Assad, activists said.
Sausan Ghosheh, a spokeswoman for the UN monitors, would not comment directly on whether entry to the village had been refused, saying: "We have dispatched a patrol which is trying to get access there."
