More than 200 people have been killed after Syrian government forces attacked a village in the province of Hama, opposition activists say.

Tremseh was first shelled by Syrian troops and then stormed by the Shabiha pro-government militia, activists quoted local residents and witnesses as saying.

The Revolution Leadership Council of Hama told Reuters that most of the dead in the village of Tremseh were civilians.
