Report: Syrian brutality could amount to crimes against humanity

Syrian authorities may have committed crimes against humanity and the United Nations Security Council should refer Bashar al-Assad’s regime to the International Criminal Court, said a report issued Wednesday by Amnesty International, quoted by CNN. The human rights report documents arbitrary detentions, severe torture and at least nine deaths in custody that occurred after Syrian authorities began a “devastating security operation” May 14 in the western town of Tal Kalakh, near the Lebanese border.
