CAIRO, May 26 (KUNA) -- Egyptian foreign minister Mohammad Kamel Amr on
Saturday condemned the "massacre" that took place in the Syrian town of Houla
near Homs which claimed up to 100 people, including women and children.
"Bombarding civilians is a crime that cannot be ignored and is a violation
of all red lines," Amr said in a statement.
He called for launching an immediate investigation over this crime and they
should be "punished in a decisive way."
Amr said the delay in the implementation of UN-Arab League envoy to Syria
Kofi Annan's plan and the Arab initiative would allow escalation of violence
and killing against civilians.
The escalation of violence in Syria, warned Amr, would have devastating
consequences on Syria and regional stability. (end)
