Palestinian seeks husband's body, held by Syrian rebels
DAMASCUS (AFP) - Arriving at the rubble of the Palestinian Yarmuk refugee camp in Damascus, Ms Hadia al-Fut discovered that her husband had been killed while fighting in the ranks of a pro-regime Palestinian group.
Worse still, she found there was little chance she would be able to recover his remains because the rebels who killed him in an ambush a day earlier were holding out for an exchange for bodies.
Ms Hadia, a Palestinian, had fled Yarmuk because of ongoing fighting there, but was back at the camp to meet her husband.
"We had an appointment because we had to register our 19-month-old son," she said between sobs.
