UN General Assembly debates crisis in Syria

The UN General Assembly debates the situation in Syria.

Delegates are meeting after the Arab League said it was ending all diplomatic co-operation with the country, and promised to give "political and material support" to the opposition.

Last week, Russia and China vetoed a UN Security Council resolution on Syria, which would have endorsed a previous Arab League peace initiative.
