Annan Calls Houla Attacks “Tipping Point of Crisis”

United Nations special envoy Kofi Annan met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad Tuesday on the heels of the Houla backlash and warned that the situation has now reached a “tipping point” given that the U.N.-brokered peace deal has failed.

Also Tuesday, French President Francois Hollande said that French participation in a multi-lateral military intervention in Syria would not be ruled out if the U.N. approved such a measure.
