| No Comments

Unarmed monitors for the United Nations have been "locked down" in Syrian cities as violence escalates.

The U.N. said the work was suspended to protect the monitors, who are caught in the middle of a crossfire between government and rebel forces in Syria, the Star Tribune reports.

Head of the mission, Gen. Robert Mood, said the situation would be reviewed daily until conditions improve enough to end the suspension, NPR reports.

The monitors were part of a peace plan that has yet to be upheld fulling in the fighting country.
