The Cleansing of Homs, Syria

World's been here before. More mass graves coming....

Red Cross aid convoy reaches Homs Reuters:
Rebels withdrew on Thursday in a key moment in the year-old uprising. An official at Syria's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Expatriates said the army had "cleansed Baba Amro from the foreign-backed armed groups of terrorists."

Activists said Syria's army had begun hunting down and killing insurgents who had stayed to cover their comrades' retreat, although the reports could not be verified. They said 10 young men were shot dead on Friday. It was not immediately clear how many rebels had been killed in the onslaught and how many had withdrawn.

"All men who remained in the neighborhood aged between 14 and 50 were arrested. We fear they will be massacred. Where is the world?," said one activist.
