BEIRUT, Jan 29 (Reuters) - At least 65 people apparently shot in the head were found dead with their hands bound in a neighbourhood of the northern Syrian city of Aleppo on Tuesday, a pro-opposition monitoring group said.

The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said the death toll could rise as high as 80 in what it called a "new massacre". It was not clear who carried out the killings. (Reporting by Alexander Dziadosz; Editing by Pravin Char)
