Laaska News July 26, 2012
UN chief Ban Ki-moon has urged world leaders to act to halt the “slaughter” in Syria, as thousands of troops reportedly move on the city of Aleppo.
“I make a plea to the world – do not delay… Act now to stop the slaughter…,” Mr Ban said.
His comments came as activists said troops with tanks and armoured vehicles were redeploying to re-take areas of Syria’s second city held by rebels.
Aleppo has seen fierce clashes, with fighter jets and helicopters deployed.
