Syria: UN chief Ban Ki-moon called Thursday on the Syrian regime to stop the killings in its crackdown on anti-government protests, stressing that "we cannot go on like this."

"In Syria meanwhile, the killing continues. This must stop," said the UN secretary-general.

"I call on the Syrian leadership to deliver on its commitments and to allow our UN humanitarian assessment team and the human rights fact-finding mission mandated by the Human Rights Council in.

"It's time to see progress here. We cannot go on like this," said Ban.
