Syria may 'return to larger-scale fighting,' U.N. warns in report

- Syria's bloody conflict is at risk of further escalation after a front line across the country flared up in recent months, the United Nations warned on Wednesday in a report.

"Syria cannot afford a return to larger-scale fighting, but that is where it may be heading," said Paulo Sérgio Pinheiro, chair of the U.N.'s Syria commission.
