The U.N. Security Council fell silent Tuesday after ambassadors viewed a series of ghastly photographs of dead Syrian war victims, France's envoy said.France, which hosted the presentation at the Security Council and a showing of the images afterward at a news conference, said they were evidence of war crimes by the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad. The veracity of the photos could not be independently confirmed. Among the new photos was an image of at least a dozen bodies laid out on the floor of a warehouse, being wrapped in plastic sheets with men in military garb standing among them.The photos were selected from among 55,000 images of tortured and slain war victims said to have been smuggled out of Syria.
