Unrest in Syria – UN delegation will examine the situation

Anti-government protests started in Syria in mid March. The protesters want to get rid of President Bashar al-Assad, whose family have been in power for 40 years. Security forces are trying to suppress the protest forcefully and many have been killed. The government has blamed the unrest on “terrorist groups”.  It is creating the need of humanitarian aids. A UN delegation with representatives from six agencies is in Syria to examine the situation at all trouble spots. They have been granted permission to visit protest places like Latakia, Homs, Hama, Deraa and others.

US requested the president to step down while Russia rejected this and saying that Mr. Assad should be given more time to make countrywide reforms. US and European union has imposed and tighten the sanctions.  In response to international pressure president has given his response through state television on Sunday.
