Activists in Syria have called for a second day of demonstrations to protest the alleged torture and killing of 13-year-old Hamza Al Khatib, whose body was returned to his family after a month in detention. When his father saw his son's mutilated body, he fainted. More on who Hamza was here. Facebook page for him here. Awful video here of what human beings in power do to other, small, utterly powerless human beings, in the name of God knows what. Warning, especially to parents: graphic.
