Evidence seen of Syria massacre

Help

The BBC has found evidence to support reports from Syria of a massacre this week in which at least 100 people were killed and burned in their homes.

A team visited the village of Haswiya, on the edge of the central city of Homs, and saw charred bodies still lying inside one of the houses.

Government soldiers said all the bodies had been taken away and blamed Islamist militants fighting with the rebels. But one villager told the BBC the army was present at the time of the deaths.

Lyse Doucet reports from Haswiya.
