Syria blames Nusra Front for Aleppo killings

BEIRUT - Syrian state media blamed the Islamist rebel Nusra Front for the killing of dozens of people in the northern city of Aleppo, contradicting activist accounts which blamed President Bashar Assad's forces for the bloodshed.
The victims' families "have identified a number of the killed, stressing that the Nusra Front abducted them because of their refusal to cooperate with this terrorist group," state news agency SANA said.
Opposition campaigners said Assad's forces had committed a massacre on Tuesday after at least 65 people were found shot dead with their hands bound alongside the Queiq River in Aleppo's rebel-held Bustan al-Qasr neighborhood.
