Syria mission nearly impossible, UN-Arab League envy says

AMMAN - Diplomatic attempts to end the Syrian conflict are "nearly impossible" and not enough is being done to end the fighting, the new UN and Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahimi said in a BBC interview broadcast on Monday.
"I know how difficult it is - how nearly impossible. I can't say impossible - nearly impossible," Brahimi, an Algerian diplomat told the BBC. "And we are not doing much. That in itself is a terrible weight."
