Torturers must have no future

One day before the start of the Syria conference, a report by international experts revealing that more than 11,000 people have been tortured and executed in Syrian prisons has caused a wave of outrage. Assad cannot be allowed to remain president after the report, the liberal English-language paper Hürriyet Daily News writes: "However, the problem is not who is killing who but how these killings will be stopped. The report on the very eve of Geneva II talks should lead the international community to a conclusion that al-Assad can and should not be allowed to be part of plans to shape Syria's future. This report is a specific and clear message to Russia and Iran and the like who want al-Assad to remain in power, that they are protecting one of the most dangerous evils of our age."
