Human Rights Council debates situation in Syria

Human Rights Council

As the violence continues in Syria, where protests against the rule of President Bashar al-Assad have been met with force, the UN Human Rights Council in Geneva is holding a special debate on Syria on Tuesday.

The debate, at the request of Qatar is going ahead despite objections from Iran which is an observer and not a member of the 47-member Council.

Derrick Mbatha reports.
