GENEVA - Three European countries have sought cooperation and information on alleged war crimes committed in Syria's war for use in domestic court cases, a United Nations human rights investigator said on Tuesday.

Karen Koning AbuZayd, an American member of the UN commission of inquiry, told a news conference that the Geneva-based investigators had "already responded to some requests using our database" but gave no specifics.

"Three governments have asked so far," she later told reporters.
