Fawaz Gerges on the Latest from Syria

Friday, June 01, 2012

Another massacre in Syria and more video showing horribly brutalized bodies. In the latest allegation, men were taken from a work bus and killed, execution style. The latest allegations suggests the same pattern as in the killings in Houla last week, actions taken by pro-government militia known as Shabiha. The United Nations Human Rights Commission is meeting in an emergency session to talk about the bloody events in Houla and now this latest atrocity.

Fawaz Gerges is the director of the London School of Economics and author of "Obama and the Middle East."
