UN fears crimes against humanity in Syria

This is not the first time the U.N. ( useless nitwits ) have said this in recent weeks, if it is not obvious to the U.N. then they are truly out of touch.

When a Government kills it's people for protesting, it is a human rights violation !
Plain and simple.

What will the U.N. Do... Nothing.

Full fledged Genocide will have to occur before the U.N. will even try and intervene in any way.

Islam, The religion of getting a pass by the U.N.


DAMASCUS — UN officials have said Syrian security forces may have committed crimes against humanity in their crackdown on protesters, as at least eight more civilians were killed in massive protests against President Bashar al-Assad's rule.

The UN concerns were expressed in a statement late Friday by Francis Deng, special adviser to Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on the prevention of genocide, and Edward Luck, the special adviser on the responsibility to protect.

"Based on available information, the special advisers consider that the scale and gravity of the violations indicate a serious possibility that crimes against humanity may have been committed and continue to be committed in Syria," the joint statement said.

The two called for an "independent, thorough, and objective investigation" of the events in Syria.

They echoed calls by Ban to the Syrian government to allow humanitarian access to areas affected by the unrest and to facilitate the visit of the UN Human Rights Council-mandated fact-finding mission to the country.

"Without these steps, it will be very difficult to defuse existing tensions and to prevent the escalation of violence," they said.

"All actors involved in the current crisis in Syria are urged to refrain from the use of force, from acts of violence, or from incitement to violence."

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights says 1,483 civilians have been killed in four months of protests, and thousands more have been arrested.
