DAILY MAIL – Russia and China have united to block a UN investigation into Assad’s war crimes in Syria.

The two countries today vetoed a U.N. Security Council resolution referring the Syrian crisis to the International Criminal Court for investigation of possible war crimes.

This is the fourth time they have used their veto power as permanent council members to deflect action against the government of President Bashar Assad.

More than 60 countries gave their support to the French-drafted resolution in a dramatic move to demand a path to justice in the conflict – which has now entered its fourth year.
