U.N. Drafts Another Syrian Resolution

The United Nations has sent a draft resolution to the General Assembly to apply pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down. It's similar to the earlier version that Russia and China vetoed, so it's unclear how this one will play out. Meanwhile, neither the Syrian government nor the opposition has taken responsibility for Friday’s deadly twin bombings in Aleppo—although both groups have been quick to blame the other. Syrian state television said 28 were killed and more than 200 wounded in the bombings, which marked the first time the Syrian violence has spread to Aleppo, a prosperous northern city where the government still enjoys large support. A spokesman for the opposition group the Syrian Revolution Coordinators Union said that it would have been “impossible” to carry out the Aleppo attacks due to the heavy security at the buildings. Opposition groups said another 14 people were killed Saturday, most of them in Homs.
