The UN Human Rights Council has voted to condemn “gross violations” of human rights in Syria following evidence security forces murdered and tortured dissidents.
Members in Geneva passed a resolution “strongly condemning the continued widespread, systematic and gross violations of human rights and fundamental freedoms by the Syrian authorities” while referring a report on the abuses to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.
Thirty-seven voted in favour of the resolution, six abstained while four countries – Russia, Cuba, Ecuador and China – voted against.
