UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Friday said he was worried that Syrian government forces were arbitrarily executing, imprisoning and torturing people in the battle-scarred city of Homs.

"A major assault on Homs took place yesterday," Ban told the 193-nation UN General Assembly. "Civilian losses have clearly been heavy. We continue to received grisly reports of summary executions, arbitrary detentions and torture."
