A month after Sky News revealed how innocent people were being killed in Zawiyah, a team has returned to find a town with buildings flattened and a mosque wiped off the map. Sky's Stuart Ramsay reports.

The previous report he mentions (WARNING this video report contains graphic imagery, including wounded children): The Battle for Zawiyah

Alex Crawford, the reporter who filmed the above battle, being interviewed by Anderson Cooper about what she witnessed while she was there.

Part 2 "if that isn't a massacre, I really don't know what is": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymCYt-UP6XE
