Scores of corpses were pulled from a river in Aleppo yesterday after the worst massacre that Syria’s war-ravaged second city has suffered.

The bloodied, mud-caked bodies of between 60 and 80 young men, some teenagers, were fished from the Queiq River in a contested district controlled at present by the rebels. Video footage posted on the internet showed that most had been bound by the wrists, then killed with a point-blank shot to the head. Their identification cards had been removed. The Times
