In its annual report, Amnesty  International has said the United Nations Security Council should have taken stronger action on the crisis in Syria.

Calling it "unfit" for its purpose, Amnesty strongly criticised the Security Council and permanent member vetoes they say serve only the interests of the individual nations.

The London-based organisation is recommending reform at the Security Council so that a veto by one of the five permanent members would not be able to stop intervention in cases of gross human rights violations.
