The pace of civilian displacement across Syria "remains relentless".

That's according to the UN's Humanitarian Affairs chief, briefing the Security Council on Tuesday.

Stephen O'Brien said the number of Syrian civilians needing protection had increased by 1.2m so far this year.

Syria's bloody civil war erupted in 2011 and around 250,000 people have been killed.
