Ban: Assad and his regime have lost their legitimacy

Secretary General Ban Ki-moon of the United Nations said, Thursday, that Syrian President Bashar Al-Assad and his regime have lost their legitimacy. Addressing the U.N. General Assembly, Ban said, "Men, women, even children were executed at a point blank range; some had their throats slit or their skulls crushed. Any regime or leader that tolerates such a killing of innocents has lost its fundamental humanity."

Ban condemned Wednesday's massacre at Mazraat Al-Qubair in the Hama area and demanded to bring those responsible to justice.
