The UN Security Council yesterday strongly condemned the Syrian government for using artillery in a massacre in which at least 108 people were killed and 300 others injured.

UN officials told an emergency Security Council meeting on the slaughter in Houla that the dead included at least 49 children.

Russia, Syria's main ally, signed up to the Security Council statement which "condemned in the strongest possible terms" the killings in the village near the protest city of Homs.
