Syrian fighters have held 54 women and children hostage for an entire year, a rights group said Wednesday, urging they be freed and warning that holding civilians can amount to a war crime.

 

New York-based Human Rights Watch said the group was captured in the coastal province of Latakia during an opposition offensive a year ago.
