GENEVA - UN Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad al Hussein condemned the Syrian government on Tuesday, in a wide-ranging speech cataloguing human rights abuses around the world.

"This is a state led by a medical doctor and yet is believed to have gassed its own people; has attacked hospitals and bombed civilian neighborhoods with indiscriminate explosive weapons; and maintains tens of thousands of detainees in inhuman conditions," Zeid said."Words cannot convey how profoundly I condemn this situation."
