BEIRUT - United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon urged Syria's President Bashar Assad on Sunday to halt violence against a 10-month uprising in which the UN says more than 5,000 people have been killed.

"Today, I say again to President Assad of Syria: Stop the violence. Stop killing your people. The path of repression is a dead end," Ban told a conference in Lebanon on political reform.
