'Horrific aftermath' of Syria clashes

Videos appear to show havoc following fighting between army and defectors in Rastan.

    Videos posted on YouTube apparently show the aftermath of recent fighting between Syrian troops loyal to the government and defectors in the Syrian city of Rastan.

    At least 60 people were killed, thousands of others detained, and many homes destroyed after Syrian security forces laid siege to the city for several days.

    Residents say around 250 military defectors took up arms to protect pro-democracy protesters there.
