Medics tortured, killed in Syria: Amnesty International
UPDATE: AMNESTY International says three medics have been tortured and killed in Syria a week after their arrest in the city of Aleppo in what it said was an "appalling disregard" for the profession.
All three men were students at Aleppo University - Basel Aslan and Musab Barad were fourth-year medical students and Hazem Batikh was a second-year English literature student and a first-aid medic - the London-based rights group said.
"The discovery of the charred and mutilated bodies of three young medical workers a week after their arrest in Aleppo city is yet further evidence of the Syrian government forces' appalling disregard for the sanctity of the role of medical workers," it said.
The three "were part of a team of doctors, nurses and first-aiders who have been providing life-saving medical treatment in makeshift 'field hospitals' set up to treat demonstrators shot by security forces".

3. I agree
This is going down like Rwanda.
Perhaps NATO, should take out Assad's air force like they did in Libya. Give the rebels a fighting chance.

4. I am on another international blog where all of Assad's crimes are being reported
and it is horrific. At the end of this when all is reported in one place, the world will be even more horrified, and Russia should be ashamed of itself.

one day pay a visit at The Hague.
OR TO ESCAPE JUSTICE
He will live in a country where he is not a FREE man and cannot travel as FREE men do.
