Syrian teenager reportedly tortured to death

New footage shows disfigured body of boy arrested in April during crackdown on protests.

    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.

    Al Jazeera's Stefanie Dekker reports, with a warning that viewers may find some of the images in the report disturbing.
