UNITED NATIONS - Syria, accused of massive human rights abuses, is resisting pressure from many UN delegations to withdraw from the race for a spot on the top UN human rights body, Western diplomats said on Monday.

Syria is one of four candidates vying for the same number of spots on the 47-nation Human Rights Council in the Asian category, along with India, Indonesia and the Philippines. The four have been endorsed by Asia's UN voting group and the Arab League.
