Human Rights Council condemns Syria abuses

Faysal el Hamaoui

The UN Human Rights Council has condemned what it calls the sharply escalating gross violations of human rights by the Syrian authorities.

The majority of the Council's members voted in favour of a resolution that Syria rejected as "biased."

The Council pointed to arbitrary executions, excessive use of force and the killing and persecution of protesters, refugees, human rights defenders and journalists as examples of the violations.
