DAMASCUS, Syria, April 26 (UPI) -- Video footage uploaded to YouTube shows what appears to be Syrian soldiers burying a rebel activist alive.

The video, which went viral Thursday, shows a blindfolded man buried up to his head as armed soldiers call him an "animal" and a "dog," ynetnews.com reported.

The man pleads for his life while one of the soldiers says to his commanding officer, "Yes sir, we placed him in there as you have ordered."

The video shows soldiers accusing the buried man of trying to record video of President Bashar Assad's forces to send to media outlets.

"I bear witness that there is no God but Allah," the man yells as the soldiers shovel dirt on top of his head.

"Say that there's no God but Bashar, you animal," the soldiers say to the man before he disappears under the ground.
