UK says Houla massacre 'an act of pure, naked savagery'

UN observers have counted at least 90 bodies, including 32 children, after a Syrian government attack on the town of Houla.

It was one of the bloodiest assaults in one area since the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began in March 2011.

Speaking to the BBC, Foreign Office Minister Alistair Burt condemned the massacre as "an act of pure, naked savagery".
