UN General Assembly votes on ceasefire
  Members of the UN General Assembly have voted to pass a resolution calling for an end to the violence in Syria. This comes just days after the UN Security Council failed to agree on a ceasefire in the city of Aleppo.
  122 countries voted in favor of the resolution that calls for a complete stop to the fighting. It also demands access for humanitarian deliveries to Syrians in dire need of help.The resolution, however, is not legally binding, so it cannot be enforced. Instead, its passage sends a powerful message of outrage and frustration over a war now almost six years long, and adds political pressure on the parties in the conflict to find a solution. Russia, China and Iran were among 13 nations that voted against the resolution.

  Friday's vote here in the full, 193-member UN General Assembly came just days after the 15-member Security Council failed to pass a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Aleppo.
