A citizen journalism image purporting to show a dead child following an assault on the Syrian town of Houla by government forces. More than 100 people, mainly women and children, were killed on the evening of May 25, after Friday prayers, in the Taldou neighborhood. Some died as a result of hours of shelling by tanks and Syrian army artillery, but most were killed by death squads from the surrounding villages.
