The conflict in Syria has reached "unprecedented levels of horror", peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has told the UN Security Council.

The UN-Arab League envoy said Syria was being destroyed "bit by bit" with grave consequences for the wider region.

He was speaking hours after evidence emerged of a fresh massacre in the northern city of Aleppo. At least 71 bodies were found.

Mr Brahimi has been trying to find a solution to the crisis based on a peace plan approved at an international conference in June 2012.

The UN says the conflict has left more than 60,000 people dead.

The BBC's Barbara Plett at the UN says Mr Brahimi delivered a blunt assessment of the situation in Syria that reflected his frustration with the deadlock in the Security Council.

"Unprecedented levels of horror have been reached. The tragedy does not have an end,"

BBC News - Syria crisis: Brahimi warns horror is 'unprecedented'

Why are we in Mali but leaving this country to die slowly and painfully?

Yes--sad story. And what might be worse is the outcome with know terrorist among the rebels that will be taking over the country and weapons (chemical) to threaten the peace in the whole area. This is a loose loose situation. No one wins. But the final outcome might likely will be worse

The situation in Syria is terrible and President Assad only cares about staying in power and not about his own people.

You know that those so called 'Freedom Fighters' are actually radical musilms, right? Muslims need dictatorship otherwise it's a mess. Look at Egypt and Lybia how did their 'fight for freedom' ended.

Has it ended? I don't know since the Morsi security force is killing unarmed protesters at the moment.

Take your bigotry elsewhere, tens of thousands are being slaughtered and you come out with that. Your views don't represent the rest of Scotland I am glad to say.

I can't see where getting involved matters because I don't like either side fighting. I think their fellow neighbors should figure it out.

That maybe, but shouldn't that be the case for Mali and Libya also?

How is that bigotry?

Of course the poster can be correct, that is why the West supported some dictatorships during the Cold War, better than the people taking over and installing a communist government. Fact is, some societies need to be ruled by a heavy hand.

Just because the people want it, does not mean it is a great idea, history is full of these examples.

History eh? What about human rights? Easy for you to say, living in peace and relative luxury.
