Festival in Syria Filled with violence

As Muslims in Syria celebrated the second of three days of feasting to honor the end of the holy month of Ramadan, the holiday's message of amity and tolerance contrasted sharply with reality.
At least 100 people were killed Monday morning, including two children and their mother in Daraa, the Local Coordination Committees of Syria opposition group said.
Among them were 10 bodies discovered splayed on the ground in the Damascus suburb of Qaboun. Video posted by activists showed at least one of the victims lying on his back, blindfolded, his arms stretched above his head. Others showed victims with bruised flesh and dark red splotches on their clothes. CNN cannot authenticate the video.
Daraa province, where the conflict began in March 2011 as peaceful anti-government demonstrations, has suffered heightened violence in recent days.
It is also the home province of Vice President Farouq al-Sharaa, who rebels say has defected from the regime
