Syrian Regime Murder 13 Mourners at Funeral Protest (Video)
At least 13 mourners were shot dead today as they buried demonstrators killed in yesterday’s violence in Syria.
The Age reported:
At least 13 mourners were shot dead on Saturday as Syrians swarmed the streets to bury scores of demonstrators killed in massive protests and two MPs resigned in frustration at the bloodshed.
Activists said the death toll from Friday’s nationwide protests could top 100, pending confirmation of a list of names.
Two independent MPs from the protest hub city of Daraa, Nasser al-Hariri and Khalil al-Rifai, told Al-Jazeera television they were resigning in frustration at not being able to protect their constituents.
The Obama White House released a very strongly worded statement following the slaughter yesterday.
