New Security Council President pushes resolution protecting schools and hospitals

The UN Security Council President for the month of July says he will propose a resolution to protect schools and hospitals in places of conflict.

German Ambassador Peter Wittig says tougher measures are needed, possibly even sanctions, to make sure these places are not targets during times of conflict.

Wittig also says Libya and Syria are likely to be at the top of the Council's agenda as the two countries and others in the Arab world continue to experience insecurity.

Julie Walker spoke with Ambassador Wittig about his plans for the month.
