Barely news: Public execution in Syria

The two men, who are largely hidden by the dust clouds, were executed after being charged by an Islamic court with detonating car bombs in the Idlib province.

Both the The Daily Mail (link above) and NYT (which only had the photo) identify the executioners as simply “Syrian rebels.”

Like so much else in Syria, the story details are murky.

But who cares about Syria anyway?  Certainly not the wider Muslim world, who obsess over Palestine to the exclusion of everything else.
