GENEVA - The UN Human Rights Council will hold a special session on the deteriorating situation in Syria on Friday, after enough states backed a US request, a UN statement said on Wednesday.

The US request to convene an urgent session of the 47-member Geneva forum was endorsed by 16 member states including Britain, France, and the United States, it said. No Arab countries were among those requesting the session, which requires one-third of the forum's membership to hold.
