JAKARTA (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on March 20 that the situation in Syria was unacceptable and called for the international community to speak with one voice and for Security Council members to display unity.
The United Nations priorities were stopping the violence and starting political dialogue, Ban told an audience in Bogor, Indonesia, during a visit to Southeast Asia.

Rebels fought gunbattles with government forces in Damascus in the most violent clashes Syria's capital has seen in the year-old revolt. More than 8,000 people have died as President Bashar al-Assad's government has cracked down on protests.
