The flood of refugees continues:
"The army is destroying buildings and bombing them 'til they turn to charcoal," Mohammed Khatib, a refugee who said he came from Kastanaz, a Syrian town of 20,000 people, told Reuters. "The army wants people to move out of their houses. If the residents refuse, they destroy them with the people inside." There were reports of a mass grave nearby after days of shelling and strafing by regime helicopters.
