UN condemns 'Syrian rebels' for detaining its observers
The United Nations Security Council has issued a statement condemning the detention of a group of more than 20 UN observers.
A video posted on the internet showed men claiming to be Syrian rebels standing next to vehicles with the letters "UN" written on them.
The UN said the observers were monitoring a ceasefire between Syria and Israel.
Russian UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin is chairman of the Security Council for the month of March.
