Syria

FILE - In this June 28, 2018 file photo, Syrian refugees in a pickup truck get ready to cross into Syria from the eastern Lebanese border town of Arsal, Lebanon. A number of Syrian refugees who returned home have been subjected to detention, disappearance and torture at the hands of Syrian security forces, proving that it still isn't safe to return to any part of the country, Amnesty International said in a new report released Tuesday, Sept. 7, 2021. It documents what it said were violations committed by Syrian intelligence officers against some returnees, including 13 children between mid-2017 and spring 2021. (AP Photo/Bilal Hussein, File)
