Attacks on Syria Christian towns 'kill 11'

The Australian

17 AUGUST, 2013

GUNMEN have shot dead 11 people, mostly Christians, in central Syria, the state-run news agency and opposition activists say.

The SANA news agency described it as a "massacre" but activists say that many of the dead were pro-government militiamen manning checkpoints.

The opposition Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said nine of those killed were Christians.

SANA said the attack occurred after midnight on Saturday on a road linking the Christian villages of Ein al-Ajouz and Nasrah in the central province of Homs.

Christians, who make up about 10 per cent of Syria's population, say they are particularly vulnerable to the violence sweeping the country of 22 million people.
