The call to end indiscriminate employment of weapons in populated areas of Syria has continued to be ignored, according to a UN top humanitarian official.

Kyung-wha Kang, the UN Assistant Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, was speaking on Wednesday at the Security Council.

She presented a report on recent developments in Syria, which is now in its fifth year of civil conflict.
