U.N. Human Rights Council Condemns Syria and Humanitarian Chief Plans Visit

The U.N. Human Rights Council voted to condemn Syria for potential crimes against humanity in the crackdown on rebel fighters and opposition protesters.

And U.N. humanitarian chief Valerie Amos announced that Syrian authorities have confirmed they will allow her to visit the country after repeatedly ignoring her earlier requests.

Amos said that during her visit, she will "urge all sides to allow unhindered access for humanitarian relief workers so they can evacuate the wounded and deliver essential supplies."
