UN war crime investigators seek meeting with Syria's Assad

GENEVA - United Nations war crimes investigators said on Thursday they would seek a meeting with Syrian President Bashar Assad.

"We decided to send a letter to President al-Assad calling for a meeting ... it would be very important that he could receive us," Pinheiro told reporters.
