Papal nuncio pleads for international effort to stop bloodshed in Syria

Catholic World News - July 13, 2012

Archbishop Mario Zenari, the apostolic nuncio in Syria, is calling upon international leaders to take action to stop the growing violence in that country.

"The situation is worse," the archbishop said, after returning to Syria following three weeks abroad. He reported that fighting between the government and rebel forces has spread across the country, and security has deteriorated for civilians.

Archbishop Zenari pressed for world powers to break a logjam that has prevented strong UN action in the case of Syria. China and Russia recently vetoed a Security Council resolution that would have slapped tough sanctions on the Assad regime, which has been charged with brutal efforts to put down the uprising.
