0

UNITED NATIONS: Five thousand people a month are dying in Syria’s war, which has now generated the worst refugee crisis since the 1994 Rwandan genocide, United Nations officials said during a council meeting on Tuesday (Wednesday in Manila). A host of top officials called on the divided UN Security Council to take stronger action to deal with the fallout from the two-year-old conflict, in which up to 100,000 people are believed to have died. Nearly 1.8 million people are now registered with the UN in countries around Syria and an average of 6,000 people a day are now fleeing.
