Aid group pleads with UN to help Syria's children

UNITED NATIONS - The aid group Save the Children pleaded with members of the UN Security Council on Monday to do more for Syria's children, nearly 2 million of whom need help because of the country's 2-year-old civil war.
The UN Security Council has been deadlocked since the start of the start of the conflict, with Syrian President Bashar Assad's close ally Russia - with the aid of China - using its veto power to block any condemnations or attempts to sanction Assad's government.
