TUNIS - The administration of Syrian President Bashar Assad will have even more blood on its hands if it does not agree to an international demand to allow in urgent humanitarian relief, US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said on Friday.

"If the Assad regime refuses to allow this life-saving aid to reach civilians, it will have even more blood on its hands," Clinton said in remarks prepared for delivery at a meeting of the "Friends of Syria" group in Tunis.

"So too will those nations that continue to protect and arm the regime. We call on those states that are supplying weapons to kill civilians to halt immediately," she said.

"You will pay a heavy cost for ignoring the will of the international community and violating the human rights of your people," she said in remarks aimed at Assad.
