With the civil war in Syria showing no sign of ending the UN's Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon said that military action will not end the ongoing conflict in the country.

Speaking from Davos, to the BBC's Lucy Hockings, Ban Ki-Moon has also condemned those supplying arms to both sides in Syria.

According to the United Nations the Syrian conflict has left over 60.000 people dead and 2.5 million people left hungry and needy.
