UN Continues Struggle to Enter Rebel Syrian Towns as U.S. Warns of Future Massacres
Bloomberg – United Nations and U.S. diplomats highlighted the risk of renewed massacres of civilians in Syria, as security forces stepped up attacks and a UN report charged them with killing and abusing children.
The UN Supervision Mission in Syria said yesterday it is concerned about the escalation of violence in Homs, an opposition stronghold, with reports of artillery shelling and fire from helicopters. The mission received reports of a large number of civilians trapped in the town, including women and children, and is trying to negotiate their release.
