联合国:叙利亚8个月镇压3,500人死亡 UN Says Death Toll in Syria Crackdown Tops 3,500

08 November, 2011

联合国人权办公室说,叙利亚政府过去八个月镇压持不同政见人士导致至少有3千500人死亡。与此同时,活动人士说,在中部城市霍姆斯致命攻击在继续。联合国人权事务高级专员的发言人表示,星期天在穆斯林节日宰牲节期间,共有19人死亡。活动人士说,星期二政府军在叙利亚第三大城市霍姆斯的巴巴阿穆尔区打死两人。霍姆斯是反对阿萨德总统的起义的中心。

尽管叙利亚政府与阿拉伯联盟达成停止暴力的协议,持续近一个星期的血腥攻击据报已造成110多人死亡。叙利亚驻阿拉伯国家联盟大使优素福.艾哈迈德星期一说,叙利亚已经采取重大步骤履行协议,例如作为有条件特赦的一部分,释放了500名囚犯。

The U.N. human rights office says at least 3,500 people have been killed in the Syrian government's eight month crackdown on dissent, while activists say deadly assaults continued in the central city of Homs. A spokeswoman for the U.N. High Commissioner on Human Rights ((Ravina Shamdasani)) said the total includes 19 people killed Sunday during the Muslim holiday Eid al-Adha. Activists said government security forces killed two people Tuesday in the Baba Amr district of Homs, Syria's third largest city that is at the center an uprising against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad.

Nearly a week of deadly assaults has killed more than 110 people, despite a deal struck with the Arab League to halt the violence. Syrian ambassador to the Arab League Youssef Ahmed said Monday Syria has taken significant steps toward fulfilling the deal, such as releasing 500 prisoners as part of a conditional amnesty.
