Syrian Arab Republic (SAR) and pro-SAR forces killed over 100 people in Houla, according to the United Nations.  Houla is actually a collection of villages to the northwest of Homs.

An unidentified Arab mapper created a Google Maps mashup showing the greater Houla area (the blue lines) last fall.  Green denotes anti-SAR villages, red represents pro-SAR villages, and yellow shows neutral villages.  Tanks represent army locations and walls are checkpoints.  I have no idea what blue markers mean, though they may be additional checkpoints.

Another mapper made a map showing the fourteen countries have expelled the SAR ambassador because of the Houla Massacre.  This is truly a case of "the West versus the rest". (Hat tip: @tweets4peace)
