Dozens of bodies discovered in Aleppo
The bodies of at least 65 people, some with hands tied behind their backs, were found in Syria’s northern city of Aleppo on Tuesday as the government and rebels trying to overthrow it blamed each other for the latest mass killing. Also Tuesday, a bomb wounded former legislator and once governor of the central province of Hama, Abdul-Razzak Qtini, as he was in his car, the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and a neighbour of Qtini said. The neighbour, who spoke on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisals, said Qtini is receiving treatment in a Damascus hospital. The bodies, almost all of men in their 20s and 30s, were discovered in the contested neighbourhood of Bustan al-Qasr.
