65 people were found shot in the head and their hands bound in the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on Tuesday as the two year revolt against President Bashar al-Assad rages on. Rebel leaders and the Syrian government are playing the blame game, saying the other was responsible for the killings. The fact is no one will know who was responsible due to the restricted media access in Syria.
U.N. - Arab League mediator, Lakhdar Brahimi told the U.N. Security Council "unprecedented levels of horror" had been reached in Syria, and that both the government and rebel forces are guilty of these crimes. Lakhdar Brahimi also made a plea to the 15-nation council to end their gridlock and help end the bloody civil war that has killed an estimated 60,000 people.
The U.N. mediator added that Syria is "breaking up before everyone's eyes". The 15 nation council must take action soon or the brutal killing by President Assad's forces and the rebel forces will only worsen and then military force might be the only option.
