Sweltering situation in Syria

Lakhdar Brahimi

UN Joint Special Representative for Syria Lakhdar Brahimi said the situation in Syria continues to deteriorate and plans to hold the international peace conference in Geneva in July do not appear feasible.

Meanwhile, soaring summer temperatures, overcrowding and deteriorating hygienic conditions are the latest threats facing four million children affected by the ongoing conflict in Syria. That's according to the UN Children's Agency (UNICEF).

In addition, the lack of safe water and sanitation increase the children's chances of falling sick with diarrhoea and other diseases.
