The interactive Google map tells a tale of horror:
The Syrian army began an assault on Hama in the early morning. This video shows heavy fire. At least 116 people have been killed and dozens more injured. There are reports of some soldiers defecting.
Will more lives be lost as this unfolds?
The Google map is updated regularly and is important for the world to see, and someday to understand.
Note from Twitter from a BBC State department correspondent:
@BBCKimGhattas there is a #RamadanMassacre hashtag which is getting pictures out
