UN renews war crimes investigation in Syria

Published: 03.28.14, 15:54 / Israel News

The UN's Human Rights Council (HRC) has renewed its war crimes investigation in Syria for another year as diplomatic efforts to revive negotiations between the government and opposition are deadlocked.


By a vote of 32-4, with 11 abstentions, the 47-nation HRC adopted the resolution that again condemns the horrific violence in Syria's three-year civil war. Russia, China, Venezuela and Cuba voted against it. UK Ambassador Karen Pierce told diplomats Friday in Geneva that the resolution represents "a measured response to the worst human rights situation that this council has ever faced." (AP)
