FULL TITLE: Stab, shot, burned and butchered: Horrifying images from Syria show how even young children did not escape Baniyas massacre
Graphic photographs have emerged of the victims of an massacre allegedly committed by gangs of Syrian militia loyal to President Bashar Assad.
The images - pixelated because they are so horrific - show shot, stabbed and burned bodies piled in the streets of the village of Baniyas.
Among the victims are a number of children, some no more than toddlers.

Forever mired in islam. (small i used to denote disrespect).
These people are a bane on the world’s existence.
Pixelated photos have pixie dust on them.
I can’t say WHO did it, but it’s horrific just the same.
Both sides are subhuman savages. If this country arms one side against the other, it is a big mistake. Ignorant, subhuman, uncivilized barbarians should not be given weapons.
One of the reasons I flip my emotional switch off is that I have said, since I was in high school (graduated in 1972) that someone could show the mangled bodies of German babies in Berlin in the mid-1940’s to demonize the 8th air force.
Not that this is a different thing, but I don’t want to see the pictures unless they are produced as evidence in a trial. I’ll just take the author’s word for it that someone killed humans of all ages indiscriminately.
Now, if they tortured them for fun, that is a completely different thing. But I need not see pictures there either.
Even if they will use them to kill other ignorant, subhuman, uncivilized barbarians? Sounds like a win—win to me.
Life is never more barbaric than your nearest moslim.
That same melody again. Remember a testimony of a girl who “witnessed” Kuwaiti babies thrown out of incubators by Iraqi troops in Kuwaiti clinics. In turned out Iraqi troops never did it and a girl was a daughter of Kuwaiti diplomat in Washington. She was in America at the time and couldn’t even see a thing.
All the same about genocide of moslems by Serbs and so on.
Thank you, UK, for keeping America informed once again.
My understanding is that she was a Kuwaiti royal, as many of these diplomats tend to be.
I don’t give a rip if every single one of them ends up dead. In fact that’s my preferred outcome. I’ll be happy if in the end Syria is populated solely by rats and cockroaches.
>>>Nayirah Testimony refers to the controversial testimony given before the non-governmental Congressional Human Rights Caucus on October 10, 1990, by a female who provided only her first name, Nayirah. In her emotional testimony, Nayirah stated that after the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait she had witnessed Iraqi soldiers take babies out of incubators in a Kuwaiti hospital, take the incubators, and leave the babies to die. Though reporters did not then have access to Kuwait, her testimony was regarded as credible at the time and was widely publicized. It was cited numerous times by United States senators and the president in their rationale to back Kuwait in the Gulf War.
Her story was initially corroborated by Amnesty International  and testimony from evacuees. Following the liberation of Kuwait, reporters were given access to the country and found the story of stolen incubators unsubstantiated. However, they did find that a number of people, including babies, died when nurses and doctors fled the country.
In 1992, it was revealed that Nayirah’s last name was al- aba (Arabic:
ambassador to the United States. Furthermore, it was revealed that her testimony was organized as part of the Citizens for a Free Kuwait public relations campaign which was run by Hill & Knowlton for the Kuwaiti government. Following this, al-Sabah’s testimony has largely come to be regarded as wartime propaganda.
Nayirah’s testimony was widely publicized.  Hill & Knowlton, which had filmed the hearing, sent out a video news release to Medialink, a firm which served about 700 television stations in the United States. 
That night, portions of the testimony aired on ABC’s Nightline and NBC Nightly News reaching an estimated audience between 35 and 53 million Americans. 
Seven senators cited Nayirah’s testimony in their speeches backing the use of force. [Note 1] President George Bush repeated the story at least ten times in the<<<<
Why in gods name is England harboring Assad’s family? You live, you die, with the same risk as everyone else -just like Pablo Escobar. Put them on a plane back to Syria before afternoon tea.
Precisely. She was a member of the Kuwaiti al Sabah royal family, which obviously had a strong interest in evicting the Iraqis from their property. Not sure if she qualified to be introduced as HRH, but she was certainly royalty from a bloodline perspective.
Probably no worse than providing lavish welfare benefits for the family members of those who conducted terror attacks against British targets, whether they were IRA or Islamist terrorists.
...committed by gangs of Syrian militia loyal to President Bashar Assad.
Syrian activists document al-Bayda and Baniyas 'massacre' 28 May 2013 Ian Pannell BBC News On 2 May, government troops and militias marched into al-Bayda, in Tartous province on Syria's Mediterranean coast. The following day they attacked neighbouring Baniyas... Syrian human rights activists and eyewitnesses claim that more than 200 civilians died and hundreds are missing in what they allege was a brutal sectarian attack against innocent civilians... both sides seem to agree that government troops had been ambushed by rebel fighters earlier that day, although tensions in the area had been simmering since the uprising began... "They started insulting us, uttering dirty words," says Om Abed. "They told us to send the men out of the house, or we would all be shot." What appears to be a leaked video taken by a government soldier gives a sense of what happened next. Troops can be seen in al-Bayda square; houses and cars are on fire, puddles of blood are visible on the road. Then the camera moves along a path past a man prostrate on his back, dead. There is a large red smear under the back of his head marking where he had been dragged. The film ends in what appears to be a shop. The floor is full of bodies, arranged in neat rows... It was not until six that night that the women left their homes... "I ran down the road and saw 20 to 30 men, lying on the ground, all shot up. Then I saw my husband and my father-in-law. They were shot in the head. There was nothing left of my husband's face apart from his mouth and nose." Activists and residents say the troops then moved on to two Sunni districts in neighbouring Baniyas... eyewitnesses talk of a frenzied sectarian assault by Alawite militias against the local Sunni population.
