The UN Human Rights Council is set to discuss how they should respond to the actions of the Syrian government after the massacre in Houla that occurred this week.
The emregency session was called after 108 civilians, including many womena and children, were slaughtered by gunmen in Houla loyal to President Bashar al-Assad. The onslaught provoked international outrage, leading to the council to draft a resolution condemning the killings.
French Ambassador Nicolas Niemtchimow, said that the resolution would hopefully be accepted by all nations.
"Nobody today can support this regime, which is a dictatorship that only thinks about its survival. Nobody can accept such massacres and we hope, France hopes, that all countries in the world will listen to what will be said today at the Human Rights Council."
UK Foreign Secretary William Hague has refused to rule out military intervention in Syria, stating, "We would have to look at all options."
