Ban Ki Moon says there’s a real and imminent threat of civil war in Syria

Speaking in New York last night, the UN General Secretary said it’s likely that war crimes and crimes against humanity have been carried out.

In a joint news conference, UN Peace Envoy Kofi Annan say efforts have to be taken to a new level – or the violence could explode beyond Syria’s borders.


Ban Ki Moon said the world was losing patience with Assad’s excuses.
