Former Syrian general to face Swedish court for alleged war crimes

STOCKHOLM: A former Syrian army general will appear before a Stockholm court over his alleged role in war crimes committed in Syria in 2012, according to the indictment seen Wednesday by AFP.
Mohammed Hamo, 65, who lives in Sweden, is accused of having participated in the call for indiscriminate strikes in and around the cities of Hama and Homs between January 1 and July 20, 2012.
The strikes were carried out by air and land without distinction — as required by international law — between civilian and military targets, the indictment states.
