GENEVA, Oct 31 (Reuters) - UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and International Committee of the Red Cross President Peter Maurer made what they called an "unprecedented joint warning" on Saturday for states to stop conflicts, respect international law and aid refugees.

They also called for states to rein in armed groups and hold them accountable for abuses, and to stop the use of heavy weapons in populated areas.
