'Village massacred' in Syria claim opposition activists

Help

Syrian opposition activist groups have given a detailed, graphic account of what they say was an organised massacre in the country.

The Syrian National Council says government forces surrounded the village of Kfar Owaid and killed all those trapped inside; more than 100 people.

In all, it is claimed 250 people have been killed in the past few days.
