‘Appalling Scene’ of Killings Found in a Syrian Village

United Nations’ observers reached the site of an alleged massacre in Syria, where they found evidence of killings in a now-abandoned farming village set amid cornfields.

“We found burned homes, and at least one burnt with bodies inside -- there was a heavy stench of burned flesh,” Sausan Ghosheh, spokeswoman for the UN observers, said in her account posted yesterday on the mission’s website.
