Dozens of bod­ies dis­cov­ered in Aleppo

Ottawa Citizen - - WORLD -

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.
