Syria 'Exterminating Detainees': UN Report

Last edited 8th February 2016

Detainees held by the Syrian government are dying on a massive scale, amounting to a state policy of "extermination" of the civilian population, a crime against humanity, United Nations investigators say. The UN commission of inquiry on Monday called on the Security Council to impose "targeted sanctions" on Syrian officials in the civilian and military hierarchy responsible for or complicit in deaths, torture and disappearances in custody, but stopped short of naming them. The report, Out of Sight, Out of Mind: Deaths in Detention, covers the period from March 10, 2011 to November 30, 2015. It is based on interviews with 621 survivors and witnesses, and evidence gathered by the team led by chairman Paulo Pinheiro.
