An attack in the Syrian village of Tremseh appeared to target the homes of army defectors and activists, and assailants used weapons including artillery and mortars, a statement by the spokesman for the UN observers in Syria said.

The observers entered the village after activists said about 220 people had been killed there by President Bashar al-Assad's troops.

The observers saw damaged houses and a burnt school and planned to return to the village on Sunday, the statement said, adding the number of casualties was unclear.
