In Syria: ‘Kill, Kill, Kill’

A Syrian activist said the regime’s marching orders are to ‘kill, kill, kill’ a day after more than 400 people were reported dead in the nation’s escalating violence. That number includes more than 200 people found dead in Daraya, a suburb near the capital of Damascus. “Daraya is being targeted because it is closest to the capital, and it is one of the first cities that revolted against the Assad regime,” said a spokeswoman for the Local Coordination Committees, an activist group. “Deep down, they know they are failing,” the spokeswoman said of efforts to quash the rebels, “but they want to destroy as much as possible before it is over.”
