Syria revolution: refugees

Last week, while in Lebanon, I got the chance to interview a few Syrian refugees that fled their country in fear of persecution over their participation in demonstrations against the Bashir Assad's regime.

Many of the men I spoke with told some disturbing episodes of physical and metal torture while in custody of the Mukhabarat (Syrian secret police), in the military prison of Homs.
