So it’s looking like the Syrian government has been yanking men and boys out of the supposedly safe refugee routes out of Homs for “questioning.” After all, why not take advantage of the “cease fire” to disappear people. Given the government’s history of torturing children to death to punish their relatives for peaceful protests at the beginning of this, I am not sanguine about the safety of these civilians.
In the wake of an activist being released after being tortured, there is increasing concern about “disappeared” protesters. The protesters continue to demand the government step down and new elections to be held. My best wishes to the missing and their families.
