SYRIA-BODIES:Syrian activists say 62 bodies recovered near Homs
Some activists said they were families from the troubled Baba Amro district in Homs who were kidnapped as they tried to flee the neighbourhood which has been under bombardment for more than three weeks.
"Families leaving Baba Amro were stopped at a checkpoint last night and 62 were kidnapped. This morning their bodies were recovered in an area loyal to Assad," said an Abu Baker from Baba Amro
But other activists from said they were minority Alawite Muslims, the same sect of Islam to which embattled Syrian President Bashar al-Assad belongs.
