BRUSSELS – Britain’s Prime Minister David Cameron on Friday called on Syrians “butchering” Syrians to turn their backs on the “criminal” Damascus regime or face justice for the blood on their hands.

President Bashar al-Assad’s regime “is butchering its own people. The history of Homs is being written in the blood of its citizens,” Cameron told a news conference at the close of a two-day European Union summit.

Describing the situation in Homs as “truly terrible,” with residents under constant shelling, with no water, no food and no medicine, he said: “It is a scene of medieval barbarity.”

As the EU issued a strong new call for the perpetrators of the violence in Syria to be brought to book, Cameron said, referring to the war crimes trial of dead Serbian strongman Slobodan Milosevic:

“We will make sure, as we did in Serbia, that there is a day of reckoning for those who are responsible.

“So I have a clear message for those in authority in Syria: turn your back on this criminal regime or face justice for the blood that is on your hands.”
