Syria crisis: Houla child massacre confirmed by UN

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

UN mission head Maj-Gen Robert Mood told the BBC the killing in Houla was "indiscriminate and unforgivable".

A ceasefire between President Assad's forces and opposition fighters supposedly began in April, but the violence shows no sign of coming to an end, as Humphrey Hawksley reports.
