Video Shows Some Victims of Latest Syria Massacre

Syrian activists have posted a video they say shows 15 bodies of men who were among dozens killed in heavy government shelling of a farming village in central Syria.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said early Friday it had reports of more than 150 killed in Tremseh, though it had collected only 30 names of the victims.

Much remains unclear about the massacre reported late Thursday. Another group, the Local Coordination Committees, said the dead numbered more than 200.

One resident, Laith al-Hamwi, said by phone on Thursday that government troops were shelling the village heavily and that dozens of people had been killed.

The activist claims could not be independently verified.
