UN: 7,500 Killed in Syria


More than 7,500 people have been killed in fighting in Syria over the past year, United Nations officials said Tuesday. President Bashar Assad has sent the army to put down political opposition throughout the country; activists in the country say the army is deliberately targeting civilians.

United States Secretary of State Hillary Clinton responded to the UN report by terming Assad a war criminal.
