United Nations monitors enter Al-Qubair on Friday, after they were blocked from doing so on the previous day
Sky News's Tim Marshall reports that despite the UN's best efforts, the key evidence of Wednesday's mass killings in al-Qubair have been covered up.
The BBC's Jon Williams, traveling with the UN, takes this video of one of the homes in al-Qubair. The building is filled with clutter, rubble, and blood:
Williams explains what he's seen during his visit to the village:
The BBC's Paul Danahar also visited Qubair today, and provides these pictures, and this audio, partially transcribed by The Guardian.
I have seen the most appalling things frankly. I have just walked into a single-storey breeeze block and there are bits of people's brains lying around on the floor. In the corner, there is a mass of congealed blood someone has tried to mop up and then frankly given up halfway through. There is a tablecloth or sheet in front of me with flowers on it at one end and bits of flesh and blood at the other. It is an appaliing scene. Whoever did this carried out a scorched earth policy. It wasn't just human beings, it was butchers.
We don't know who did it. What we do know is something very terrible happened ...
We've spoken to a man from a nearby village who said that after the attack took place a civilian pick-up truck arrived and took the bodies away ...
It is a terrible sight. No one will be able to claim that some brutal killings didn't take place here because despite the best efforts of the people that carried out, the evidence is still lying on the floor.
