UN ‘too cautious’ on Syria
The UN should deliver aid into Syria with or without the government's consent, a group of prominent lawyers and academics say in an open letter. The letter, signed by 35 legal experts, says permission for aid is being arbitrarily withheld. Professor John Dugard, a former member of UN International Law Commission, is one of the signatories.
