Washington - The Syrian government appears to be preparing a massacre in an opposition stronghold, the U.S. State Department said on Monday, citing reports from U.N. observers inside the country and warning that Syria's army will be held to account for killings.

The United States shares U.N. envoy Kofi Annan's “deep alarm at reports from inside Syria that the regime may be organizing another massacre, this time in the village of al-Haffeh,” said State Department spokeswoman Victoria Nuland.

“The international community can and does learn what units were responsible for crimes against humanity and you will be held responsible for your actions,” she told a news conference. - Reuters
