Syria - New Videos From the Houla Massacre

Warning - This post links to extremely graphic images.

Following from my live blog covering the Houla Massacre a large number of new videos have been uploaded from Houla, here's a selection.

May 25th 2012 - GRAPHIC - A large number of dead children, so with their hands tied together - UPDATE - Having discussed this with a few people it appears the hands are tied together to keep them close to the body so they are easier to bury once rigor mortis sets in.
