Momentum is gaining among members of the UN Security Council for a resolution against Syria. But will it be enough to end the war?
Syria began its descent into civil war in early 2011, when government security forces shot and killed protesters. But if President Bashar al-Assad thought a show of force would end the protests, he was wrong.
Frustration over Syria is understandable. Nevertheless, Carla Del Ponte's resignation isn't, says Andreas Zumach.
Carla Del Ponte says she intends to resign from a UN commission established to probe atrocities in Syria's civil war. The Swiss national came to prominence investigating atrocities in Rwanda and the former Yugoslavia.
The White House has claimed that it has identified plans for another chemical weapons attack in Syria. It warned of drastic action should Assad use chemical weapons.
