Bishop questions silence on Syria violence

Bishop questions silence on Syria violence

The Bishop of Bristol has criticised the Government’s lack of interest in the “wholesale slaughter” taking place in Syria.

Scores have reportedly been left dead after the Syrian army sent in tanks to Hama on Sunday to crush the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad.

Bishop Mike Hill said: “I can’t be the only person wondering why the West, having rapidly decided that intervention in Libya was a righteous and necessary cause, seem less interested in the wholesale slaughter taking place in Syria.”
