45 women, children killed in Homs massacre, Syrian opposition says

At least 45 women and children were stabbed and burned to death late Sunday in the Syrian city of Homs, opposition activists said, after peace talks between a U.N. special envoy and the Syrian regime failed to yield a cease-fire.

The slaughter in Homs took place in the Karm al Zaytoun neighborhood, according to the Local Coordination Committees of Syria, a network of opposition activists. The Adawiya neighborhood of Homs was also involved, according to the London-based Syrian Network for Human Rights.
