WASHINGTON - The White House on Saturday accused the Syrian government of creating a humanitarian crisis and urged it to halt its crackdown and civilians and give the Red Cross immediate, unfettered access to the country's northern region.

"Syrian leaders have no excuse for denying humanitarian assistance by a neutral body like the ICRC," the White House said. "If Syria's leaders fail to provide this access, they will once again be showing contempt for the dignity of the Syrian people."
