Amnesty Condemns Syrian Rebels

Amnesty International said on Friday the alleged killing of Syrian government soldiers by the rebels could be constituted as war crimes. The alleged execution, captured on video but not confirmed, occurred after rebels overran army checkpoints in Damascus and Aleppo. The video allegedly shows rebels kicking and pushing a dozen soldiers to the ground, and then a barrage of shots were fired at the soldiers. Meanwhile, fighting continues to rage in Syria, with the pro-opposition group the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights saying that 150 people died in clashes on Thursday, including more than 70 government soldiers.
