France has launched an inquiry into Syrian President Bashar Assad's regime for alleged crimes against humanity, saying it was forced to act in the face of "systematic cruelty".The French investigation is largely based on evidence from a former Syrian army photographer known by the codename "Caesar" who fled the country in 2013, taking with him some 55,000 graphic photographs.The inquiry will be led by France's war crimes body.Syria's war has killed more than 240,000 people and Western diplomats have accused Assad's regime of killing more of their own people than ISIS by dropping barrel bombs – charges the government denies.The Syrian government has branded the report "political".
