Syrian envoy walks out of UN debate

The Syrian envoy at an urgent UN human rights council debate on the Syrian crisis has walked out of the meeting, saying it did not recognise the legitimacy of the session.

Faysal Khabbaz Hamoui said the debate was "fuelling the flames of terrorism by expressing a message of support to armed groups".
