U.N. Observers Suspends its Mission in Syria

The United Nations announced today that it was suspending its observer mission in Syria.  The New York Times reported that the head of the United Nations Supervision Mission in Syria (UNSMIS), Maj. Gen. Robert Mood, said that the bloodshed was posing significant risks to the observers and was impeding their ability to carry out its mandate. They will review that suspension on a daily basis.
