Nearly 50 children were among those Syrians killed execution-style in a massacre that left 108 dead in Houla, Syria, the United Nations (UN) reported. Former UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan led a special UN envoy to Syria today to try to salvage a peace plan with President Bashar Assad and stem the 14-month violent civil conflict raging between the government and the rebels.
