UN confirms existence of foreign militants in Syria
Crimes performed by these elements such as kidnappings, torture and mistreatment of captured government soldiers also were repudiated by the UN High Commissioner
A team of UN experts confirmed on Monday the existence of aliens within the armed opposition groups in Syria, who commit war crimes.
- There are reasonable grounds to believe that antigovernment forces in that country perpetrate killings, extrajudicial executions and torture - said Paulo Pinheiro, head of an independent international panel investigating the situation in Syria.
In an interactive dialogue with the Commission on Human Rights in Geneva, the expert also denounced the use of children under 18 years of age by armed opposition groups.
