Bloodbaths and Blame: UN confirms new killings in Syria days after Houla
From: BBC News
Observers from the UN have confirmed the discovery of 13 shooting victims in Syria as international outrage continues after the Houla massacre.
The menís bodies were found near the eastern city of Deir al-Zour, with their hands tied behind their backs, some apparently shot in the head.
UN mission chief Maj Gen Robert Mood said he was "deeply disturbed" by the "appalling and inexcusable act".
Hopes of a new initiative over Syria have been dented by Russia and China.
A Russian minister ruled out any action by the UN Security Council soon, saying Moscow "categorically" opposed foreign intervention.
The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, has said a further escalation of the conflict in Syria is the likeliest scenario now, with it spreading to other countries in the region. She was speaking after a closed meeting of the UN Security Council in New York.
Her British counterpart, Mark Lyall-Grant, said that a third element, including jihadists, was now active in Syria. He called them "spoilers".
Turkey is expelling all Syrian diplomatic staff from Ankara, a day after a number of Western states announced a co-ordinated series of expulsions in response to the killing of 108 people in Houla last week.

But some nations arenít waiting for conclusive proof before declaring President Assad guilty, opinion based largely on a number of unverified accounts. The situation is further confused by a plethora of witness reports blaming rebel Islamist gangs for the slaughter."
