Syrian regime engages in systematic torture, says report | World news | guardian.co.uk

Information given by former Syrian detainees and defectors has identified the locations, agencies responsible, torture methods used, and in many cases the commanders in charge of 27 detention facilities run by the country’s four main intelligence and security organisations, according to Human Rights Watch.
