UN investigators states that Syrian government forces and their militia allies committed crimes against humanity, but rebels have also carried out war crimes, although on a lesser scale.

In their latest report, investigators also blamed President Bashar al-Assad's troops and shabiha allies for the massacre in central Syria's Houla in May when 108 civilians, including 49 children, were killed.

A confidential list of individuals and units believed to have perpetrated the atrocities will be submitted to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, in the first step towards seeking accountability for the crimes.
