Medics tortured, killed in Syria: Amnesty International

Source: AFP


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".

1. And the world

is continuing to let this happen . NO I don't want another war, but I would think a UN police action would be indicated.

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.

7. Assad is just................

showing who he really is.His father killed somewhere between 10 and 40 thousand Syrians in one action in the early eighties.The opposition are not all angels .It is a tough neighborhood but the Assads are world class bad actors.I do not care if he was educated in the the UK or that his western born and raised chic wife was was featured in VOGUE a few months before all this happened.They are terrible people.

He will live in a country where he is not a FREE man and cannot travel as FREE men do.
