Lakhdar Brahimi calls for Syria transition

The UN Special Representative on Syria has called for Syrian-led leadership transition but not for Assad to step down.

    As the situation in Syria goes from bad to worse, Lakhdar Brahimi stepped into the role of UN Special Representative on Syria and picked up where his predecessor left off.

    He called for a Syrian-led political process, leading to a leadership transition but stopped short of calling for the Syrian president to step aside.
