Syria Accused of Torturing Second Teenager to Death –By David S. Morgan | CBS

(WARNING: Graphic video)

The body of a 15-year-old Syrian boy, bearing signs of what activists called torture, was returned to his parents six weeks after the boy disappeared.

Video footage of the boy’s body obtained by Al Jazeera from a Syrian source shows what appear to be gruesome wounds: Riddled with bullet holes, the boy’s body is missing an eye and several teeth, his neck and leg broken. A large part of his lower face is now a large hole.

Hundreds in the town of Jeeza mourned the death of Thamer al-Sahri Wednesday. The boy had vanished six weeks ago along with his friend, Hamza al-Khatib, a 13-year-old whose tortured remains were released by Syrian authorities in late May.

Hamza’s body was covered in burns and scorch marks – signs of being tortured by electric shocks and cigarettes. Hamza’s neck had been broken, his arms shot, and his genitals cut off. The torture of Hamza became an international rallying cry against the regime of President Assad.
