UN head denounces Syrian regime
Friday 17 February 2012
The UN Secretary-General accused the Syrian regime of potential crimes against humanity as activists reported violence in Deraa, the city where the uprising against President Bashar al-Assad began 11 months ago.
Ban Ki-moon demanded the Syrian regime stop using indiscriminate force against civilians caught up in fighting between government troops and Mr Assad's opponents.
"We see neighbourhoods shelled indiscriminately, hospitals used as torture centres, children as young as 10 chained and abused," Mr Ban said.
