Hundreds of Syrians have fled the coastal town of Baniyas where activists claim that fighters loyal to the president, Bashar al-Assad, have carried out a massacre.

Sunni Muslim families left on Saturday, fearing further sectarian violence after more than 100 people were killed overnight by pro-Assad militias, according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. Over 62 bodies had been identified so far, including 14 children.
