    Al Jazeera has obtained footage of the disfigured body of a 15-year-old Syrian boy.

    Thamer al-Sahri was arrested in April for participating in an anti-government protest. His body was released on Wednesday.

    The video comes from a reliable source, but we are unable to independently verify it due to restrictions on journalists in the country.
