Report: Lawyers see war crimes charges for Syrian officials
Syrian officials could face war crimes charges after a military police photographer defected and provided evidence showing the systematic killing of 11,000 detainees, the Guardian newspaper reported, citing three lawyers who had examined the files.

 

The photographs will ratchet up the pressure on President Bashar Assad, who the United States and its Western allies say has committed war crimes against his own people. Assad denies war crimes and says he is fighting 'terrorists'. (Reuters)
