More details in Syria massacre
The U.N.'s human rights office says most of the 108 victims of a massacre in Syria last week were shot at close range including women and children who were gunned down in their homes.
The report didn't say decisively who was responsible for most of the deaths but it quoted survivors and witnesses as saying pro-government militias went house-to-house, killing people.
International envoy Kofi Annan met with Syrian President Bashar Assad in Damascus today, hoping to bring an end to the violence.
Meanwhile, German, Italian and Spanish foreign ministries have announced that Syrian ambassadors are being expelled - following similar moves by France, Britain, Australia, and Canada.
