In addition, the groups say the authorities have been carrying out "arbitrary arrests" in different regions, and they said that 13 people had been detained in the Mediterranean coastal towns of Latakia and Jabla.The statement called on the Syrian authorities to "face up to their responsibilities by bringing an end to the spiral of violence, to the murders and the bloodbath on the streets of Syria, whatever the origin of that violence."The groups also expressed "their concern at the determination of the Syrian authorities to continue their violations of human rights and basic freedoms, such as the right to demonstrate peacefully and the freedom of opinion and expression". The rights groups which signed the statement and say they have a list of the names of all 28 victims, included the Syrian National Organisation for Human Rights, the Kurdish Committee for Human Rights and the Defence Committee for Democratic Freedom and Human Rights.
