Russia Accused of War Crimes

Matthew Rycroft, the British ambassador to the UN, accused Russia of committing war crimes with the Syrian Regime.  During Sundays airstrikes, 23 plus civilians were killed.  Samantha Power, UN representative for the US said Russia's actions were "barbarism, not counter-terrorism."  Reports say that 45 people, including 10 children, were killed on Saturday during the bombings, and that over 200 innocent civilians have been killed since the cease-fire ended on Monday.  As the UN continues an attempt to bring peace to Syria, it is starting to look like an impossible task.
