Video: Syrian Death Squads Massacre Mourners at Funerals
A mother and brother of a victim of Syrian President Bashar Assad’s death squads were gunned down as they tried to bury the victim until security forces fired at crowds. Five others were killed and more than 40 were wounded.
The mourners fled in a panic, and soldiers and police continued to shot at anyone in the street at Homs, a center of opposition against the Assad regime.
