Syria Uprising: Massacre in Hama (Video)
Syria Uprising: Over 100 Killed
Over 150 Syrians have been killed in the past two days since President Bashar al-Assad sent tanks and artillery to crack down on anti-government protests throughout the country. Hama, currently under siege, has been the focal point of the crackdown. Syrians are calling it the Ramadan Massacre.
This is is a familiar scene for the Assad family: Hafez Assad, Bashar's father, ordered the Hama Massacre of 1982, in which up to 40,000 people were killed while opposing the brutal regime.
Ban Ki-Moon: Bashar al-Assad Has 'Lost Humanity'
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon had harsh words for Assad, to the extent that the Syrian government cares what any other nation thinks. Speaking of Bashar al-Assad in the past tense does not change the fact that he is very much present.
He branded the weekend violence as "totally unacceptable" saying Mr Assad "must be aware that under international humanitarian law, this is accountable".
"I believe that he lost all sense of humanity," Mr Ban told reporters.
