GENEVA (Reuters) - United Nations investigators said on Monday they had identified Syrians in "leadership positions" who may be responsible for war crimes, along with units accused of carrying them out.
Both government forces and armed insurgents are committing war crimes, including killings and torture, in a conflict spreading terror among civilians, they said in a latest report based on 445 interviews with victims and witnesses abroad.
