World Bulletin/News Desk

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay on Friday urged the international community to find a solution to end the Syria conflict, dpa reported.

"I am appalled at the apparent killing of women, children and men in the village of al-Bayda, and possibly elsewhere in the Baniyas area, which seem to indicate a campaign targeting specific communities perceived to be supportive of the opposition", Navi Pillay said.

She said there was major build-up of government forces in certain areas, which may lead to further killings. Pillay also noted an increase in violence reportedly perpetrated by opposition forces.

Perpetrators from both sides should be brought before the International Criminal Court for human rights violations, she said.
