Syria jihadists accused of 'execution' war crimes
DAMASCUS (AFP) - Jihadists in Syria were accused on Friday of war crimes over the killing of 190 civilians from President Bashar al-Assad's Alawite minority, in the largest atrocity attributed to rebel fighters.
Human Rights Watch said another 200 people - the vast majority women and children - were taken hostage in the operations that took place in August and are still being carried out.
The report, which urged an arms embargo on groups suspected of war crimes or crimes against humanity, said at least 67 of the victims were "executed or unlawfully killed".
It comes as NATO chief Anders Fogh Rasmussen said he sees no military solution to the 31-month conflict in Syria, which has killed more than 115,000 people.
