Massacre in Syria as tanks attack Hama...(graphic video)

At least 95 people were killed on Sunday when the military launched an attack on the flashpoint protest city of Hama in central Syria, a human rights activist said.

Ammar Qorabi, who heads the National Organisation for Human Rights, reported the toll and also said army attacks across the country on Sunday killed at least 121 people and wounded dozens more.

Earlier, Rami Abdel Rahman of the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported a death toll in Hama of 45, but said that number could rise because of the number of seriously wounded and a lack of medical supplies.

One Hama resident reached by phone told AFP that the army entered the city at around 6:00 am (0300 GMT) in an apparent operation to wrest back control after almost two months during which security forces were absent.

Another said: "Five tanks are now deployed outside the governor's palace," and spoke of intermittent gunfire, while a third resident reported seeing four BTR-type armoured personnel carriers. More...
