Nearly 15 months after the revolt began in Syria and there is still no end to the bloodshed in sight.

More than 80 people were killed on Saturday by security forces, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. The most deadly violence was in Homs and Deraa.

Meanwhile, the main opposition umbrella group, the Syrian National Council, elected a Kurdish activist as its new leader on Saturday. Abdelbasset Sida was the only candidate.

He is taking over from Burhan Ghalioun, who has been criticised for having his presidency constantly renewed.
