Kofi Annan quits as UN-Arab League envoy
The UN-Arab League joint special envoy to Syria, Kofi Annan has announced he is leaving his post.
In a news conference, he said the Syrian people "desperately need action" but criticised the UN Security Council for "finger pointing and name calling".
| My work here is done, citizens [burp]...|
Mr Annan authored a six-point
| That means you, Russia and China...|road kill peace plan for Syria which was intended to bring an end to the fighting.
But the plan was never fully adhered to by either side
and the violence has continued to escalate.
| As in, Pencilneck continued to murder his people, and the people got tired of being murdered so they fought back...|
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon said it was "with deep regret" that he announced Mr Annan would not renew his mandate when it expires at the end of August.
| As in, the people are getting good at fighting back...|
