UN monitors in Syria 'fired on' near Haffa

UN monitors were fired on and forced to turn back as they attempted to reach Haffa in northern Syria, a spokeswoman for the mission has said.

Sausan Ghosheh said stone-throwing crowds stopped the teams from reaching the town and that three cars were fired on as they left.

The UN has warned of an alarming escalation in violence in Haffa.

The fighting comes as the Syrian government stands accused of being behind two massacres in the past month.
