Syria War Criminals Will Face Justice, U.N. Rights Boss Vows

The U.N. human rights chief said on Thursday that suspected war criminals in Syria will face justice for gross violations against civilians someday as the evidence against all sides grows. Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, speaking on the eve of the fourth anniversary of the start of the conflict, denounced the "bloodlust" of Islamic State forces controlling large parts of Syria and Iraq who have beheaded Western hostages and burned alive a Jordanian pilot. Zeid told a Geneva audience in a joint interview with U.N. refugee boss Antonio Guterres by CNN's Christiane Amanpour, "Justice will be done, it may not be immediate, but hopefully as we go through the transition from total impunity to justice being realized, we will honor the victims and the kin of the victims."
