Syria opposition video 'shows dozens of male bodies'

Opposition activists have posted a video purporting to show at least 51 muddied male bodies alongside a river bank in the rebel-held Bustan al-Qasr neighbourhood of Aleppo.

The video, which is too graphic to post, follows a man walking along a river bank past dozens of male bodies with their hands tied and blood coming from their heads.

ITV News cannot independently confirm the veracity of the video, however, the size of the paving slabs alongside the river banks appear to match Google aerial images of the area it claims to show.
