UN wants access to Syria as violence continues to escalate

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says he's alarmed at the growing violence in Syria, as the government continues to crackdown on protesters calling for change.

He is again urging the Syrian government to allow humanitarian access to affected areas and to facilitate the visit by the fact-finding mission of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights.

Media reports state that dozens of people may have been killed over the past week in Homs, one of the towns and cities in Syria where tensions have been strongest between demonstrators and security forces.
