“I think that based on definitions of war criminal and crimes against humanity, there would be an argument to be made that he would fit into that category,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Tuesday of Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad. Since last March, the United Nations estimates at least 7,500 Syrians have died at the hands of government forces. Among the dead are at least 280 children, according to the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, a collection of local committees from throughout Syria that have emerged since the uprising began. The same group says at least 102 people died just yesterday. And as the UN Human Rights Council calls for an immediate ceasefire, the regime of President Bashar al-Assad accuses the HRC of inciting terrorism. This week’s photo gallery from Latitude News takes a hard look at life inside Syria.
