Amnesty publishes a report today on the programme of mass executions in Syria
A terrifying and sickening report on the execution of possibly 13, 000 Syrians is published in a major report by Amnesty. The report makes chilling reading as testimony from survivors and guards describe the horrific process of killing and disposal of bodies by the regime. A summary of the report is published in the Guardian today. There is also a piece by Kate Allen, director of Amnesty describing the prison as a slaughterhouse.
