A video has emerged of Syrian soldiers apparently abusing the bodies of dead opposition activists in Idlib near the Turkish border.

The gruesome footage, recorded in March but only posted online on Friday, shows what appears to be Syrian soldiers kicking and stepping on bodies. The victims were said to be volunteers who moved wounded people across the border into Turkey.

The pictures were taken by one of the soldiers and leaked to the opposition, activists said.
