Hundreds of tortured detainees released, says Syria rights group
Source: M&C

Damascus - Syrian security released hundreds of detainees on Thursday, whom the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said had been tortured.

The rights group said the detainees had been accused of taking part in anti-government protests last week in the city of Banias, a coastal town in northwestern Syria, and the nearby town of Baida.
