Death toll in Syria protest town attack rises to 27


AMMAN, May 17 (Reuters) – Syria‘s army and security forces killed at least 27 civilians in a three-day tank-backed attack on the border town of Tel Kelakh to subdue pro-democracy protesters, rights lawyer Razan Zaitouna said on Tuesday.

“There are 27 confirmed names. An unknown number of bodies were taken to the main hospital in Tel Kelakh and not handed over to their families,” Zaitouna told Reuters.

Tel Kelakh is a few kilometres from Lebanon’s northern border with Syria.
