UN Monitors In Second Bid To Reach Site Of Syrian Massacre

The BBC reports:

UN monitors are making a second attempt to reach a village in Syria’s Hama province where a massacre took place. The observers, who were fired at near to Qubair village on Thursday, left in convoy from Damascus and are now close to the village. 

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon condemned the massacre, warning of an imminent danger of civil war. Activists say government-backed militia killed 78 people in Qubair, but the regime says terrorists are responsible.
