Aleppo, Syria -

The bodies of dozens of young men, all apparently executed with shots to the head, were found on Tuesday in a river in a rebel zone of Syria's Aleppo city, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said.

A rebel Free Syrian Army captain at the scene confirmed the discovery, saying that at least 68 bodies had been found and that many were still being dragged from the water. - Sapa-AFP
