At least 3,500 people have been killed in Syria since the crackdown on pro-democracy protests began in March this year, according to the UN Human Rights office.

Security forces have reportedly been using tanks and heavy weapons in residential areas.

An independent commission of inquiry into human rights violations during the unrest has so far failed to gain access to Syria.

Claire Doole reports from Geneva.
