CNN reported yesterday on an extremely disturbing and graphic video posted on YouTube in late April that allegedly shows uniformed Syrian troops planting ammunition on the bodies of dead men. “Show me those weapons. Put them there,” a man in the video says. “Leave them there, they are the weapons the committee will come film,” he says, referring to a committee from Syrian TV. Meanwhile, the New York Times reports on other videos “that seem to have been filmed as souvenirs by men taking part in military operations against protesters.”
