Syrian troops accused of killing children

Two fathers say their sons were targeted by soldiers as testimonies point to a trigger-happy security force.

    Syrian government forces have been blamed by residents for attacking and killing thousands of civilians, including hundreds of children, as part of the ongoing crackdown on the country's 11-month uprising.

    Two fathers in central Damascus, which has experienced a protest movement smaller than other cities like Homs, Hama and Idlib due to a heavier presence of security forces, tell Al Jazeera how their sons were either murdered or shot by troops.

    One of them blames a soldier for his son's death in this exclusive report.
