(CNN) – A team of internationally renowned war crimes prosecutors and forensic experts has found "direct evidence" of "systematic torture and killing" by the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's regime, the lawyers on the team say in a new report.
Their report, based on thousands of photographs of dead bodies of alleged detainees killed in Syrian government custody, would stand up in an international criminal tribunal, the group says.
CNN's "Amanpour" was given the report in a joint exclusive with The Guardian newspaper.

Syrian regime massacred in 1982 around 30000 in Hama in few days and is still massacring and torturing thousands. World need no more evidences to finish this anti-human armory.
Al assad is a criminal that have been supported byhezbolah terrorist group and dictator iran regime and Russia mafia. He killed thousands of innocent Syian children using dynamite barrels and chemical weapons.
The world has cut the regime far too much slack. The initial US response was the right one.
It is time for the US to intervene. Assad is more brutal and crazy than Saddam.
The international community has to take its responsibility to rescue the syrian people.
He will fall with the very first attack by an organized army against him.
Switched off the programme within a minute of the images being taken up for discussion. It is no mitigation to say that both sides have been brutal. The government of Qatar may have a vested interest in bringing some facts, not all of them, to public notice. The bar in terms of civilised conduct must be higher for a national government. It has used tanks, fighter aircraft, poison gas, now these incidents of torture and custodial killing. The international diplomats will simply meet in antiseptic Geneva, over veal cutlets and fondue.
The EU is dealing with Assad behind the scenes, Israel has changed position. The Saudi's want the US to have a larger role. The EU and others are worried about terror, Assad regardless of this evidence is seen as the lesser evil. Everything is a contradiction, one side says get more involved the others say they want him to stay. All you can do is open dialogue between them and remove the US from the scene. If the EU want to work CT with Assad let them, other want to stay as he is the lesser evil well no complaints after about missiles or Iran or the CT. Let the region sort it out themselves what ever happens the US will be blamed. The US cannot say Assad can stay, lose all credibility only extract the US from the situation. Into the bottom draw goes that file.
