Al-Jazeera Video: Syrian children killed amid crackdown
I wonder if the Syrian thugs had help from Muqtada Sadr and his Drill Team, since they are the world's experts in drilling holes in the bodies of living humans as they torture them to death.
"Human rights groups say more than one hundred children have been killed in the six months since the crackdown on Syria's pro-democracy movement began.
Activists say Syrian security forces arrested 15 year old Tamer Al Shrei on April 29th, his father found his body in a morgue more than a month later.
He will have his testimony heard at the UN-backed Human Rights Commission in Geneva on Monday.
He spoke exclusively to Al Jazeera: "I wanted to keep hoping that he was alive. It would have been better to retain hope. Eleven bullets and the drill hole through his head. A huge hole in his cheek.
"They smashed his teeth in. A shot in this arm and this arm. And here they drilled him and broke his hand. Two bullets in his leg. This thigh had three bullets in it. This is all documented in the medical report."
Warning the report contains strong images.
