Witness of Syrian atrocities testifies in Congress

WASHINGTON (AP) — Images of emaciated corpses, slashed necks and ripped-open foreheads are on display at a remarkable hearing of the House Foreign Affairs Committee. The photographs were taken by a former Syrian military photographer testifying before the panel. The man is codenamed "Caesar" and appeared in disguise wearing a blue hooded raincoat, hat and glasses. Before defecting from Syria earlier this year, he smuggled out 55,000 photos showing more than 10,000 bodies. Caesar whispered to an interpreter, who repeated his words in English. He said he witnessed a "genocidal massacre."
