UNITED NATIONS - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed
revulsion on Tuesday over atrocities in Syria's two-year civil war as detailed
in a report prepared by UN human rights investigators, a spokesman for the
world body said.
"He has seen this report," Ban's spokesman Martin
Nesirky told reporters. "Frankly he finds the catalog of atrocities in that
report to be both sickening and staggering."
United Nations human rights
investigators said in Geneva on Tuesday they had "reasonable grounds" to believe
that limited amounts of chemical weapons had been used in Syria and warned that
the shattered country was in "free fall."
