Saddest picture of the week

 Pink Shrouds

Buried in white shrouds tied up with pink bows: The little girls slaughtered by Assad's thugs after massacre in Damascus

It is perhaps one of the most poignant and heart-wrenching images to come out of Syria after 19 long months of bloody civil war.

The bodies of four innocent young girls, possibly sisters, are wrapped in linen tied with pink bows as they lie among dozens of dead women and children, the latest victims of Bashar Assad's brutal regime.

The girls are believed to be among some 22 civilians slaughtered by the state-sponsored militia known as the Shabiha in the town of Douma near Damascus yesterday.
