A video that appears to show rebels in Syria executing a small group of soldiers from the regime of President Bashar Assad has prompted human rights groups and officials to appeal to all sides to respect the human rights of their prisoners.
It's been just a day after the grudging cease-fire expired between the Syrian government and rebels. Reports from Syria say government warplanes are bombing rebel-held areas with even greater vehemence.
Witnesses told Reuters there were air strikes in the eastern suburbs of Damascus, the city of Homs in central Syria, and a town in the north that's on the main highway between Damascus and Aleppo.
Eid al-Adha is one of the holiest days on the Muslim calendar. The day marks the end of the hajj pilgrimage to Mecca. It's the feast of the sacrifice, when any Muslim who is able should sacrifice an animal and donate the meat to the poor.
There is little to celebrate in Syria's largest city, Aleppo, however. A cease-fire called for the holiday is already crumbling, and in some areas it never took hold.
