An opposition group said Syrian troops loyal to President Bashar al-Assad stormed a suburb of Homs, killing residents with knives and other blunt objects or torching them along with their homes.
The U.K.-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said 106 people were killed in the raid on Basateen al-Huswiya, a poor suburb outside the city of Homs, that began on Jan. 15. The group said on its Facebook page that it has fully documented the names of 25 dead civilians so far, 14 of them from the same family, including three children. It said it has received information that other families were killed en masse, including one that lost 32 members.
