NICOSIA (AFP) — Thirty-four Syrians abducted by pro-regime “shabiha” militiamen on Monday were found dead in the flashpoint central city of Homs, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights reported.

The Britain-based watchdog said that an activist on the ground said that he “saw the bodies of 34 civilians, in a square in the pro-regime neighborhood of Al-Zahra, who had been abducted by the shabiha on Monday.”

The report said the civilians had been seized from several “anti-regime neighborhoods” in the central city of Homs, which has been targeted by a brutal crackdown on almost nine months of anti-regime dissent.
