UN: 150,000 flee Syria in one month
A record 150,000 people fled Syria this month to escape the worsening conflict now trapped in a "destructive military spiral," the top UN political official said Tuesday.

  

UN under secretary general Jeffrey Feltman also pointedly told the UN Security Council that abuses committed by President Bashar al-Assad's forces were "significantly" worse than those of the opposition, even though both could face war crimes charges. (AFP)
