The future of war-torn Syria should not rest "on the fate of a single man", according to the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

The UN chief indicated that the removal of Syria's president could not be the only consideration for ending the civil war which has left hundreds of thousands dead, and millions displaced.

Addressing the opening of the General Debate of the General Assembly, Ban Ki-moon deplored Monday's attack on an aid convoy in Syria, which has led the UN to suspend its whole aid operation.
