Syrian activists say dozens killed in village

Activists said Thursday that forces loyal to President Bashar Assad wielding knives and guns swept through a small farming village in central Syria earlier this week, torching houses and killing at least 37 people, including women and children.

 

A government official in Damascus denied the reports of carnage in the hamlet of Haswiyeh just outside the city of Homs, saying no such killings took place at all in the area. (AP)
