On Sunday, 60 people were killed in Damascus and its suburbs, the opposition Local Coordination Committees of Syria said. The LCC said 21 people, including an entire family, were found dead in the Damascus suburb of Daraya.
It said 47 people were killed Sunday in Daraa, the town south of Damascus near the Jordanian border where Syria's uprising began.
CNN spoke by Skype to an activist named Osama, who said the army was executing families in their homes in Daraya and stealing some possessions.
He said shelling began last Monday and the military closed all the ways in and out. He kept contact with people inside Daraya through the Internet.
He was told the army moved into the neighborhood on Friday and began sweeping through buildings where families were taking cover.
At least 50 bodies were found in one apartment basement, he reported.
Saturday's death toll included more than 200 bodies found in Daraya, but it was unclear when those victims were killed.
I talk about how our political system is broken and how America is in trouble, and I am humbly reminded that perspective is everything, and as bad as the GOP is, they are nowhere close to the al-Assad regime in the evil, repugnant bastard department.
And so it goes.
