Assad could be regarded as war criminal: Hillary
Assad could be regarded as war criminal: Hillary
Clean Media Correspondent 
Washington: Feb 29: (CMC) The Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad could be regarded as a "war criminal" given the number of innocent people being killed every day in Syria, the US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has told lawmakers. 
"I think that based on definitions of war criminal and crimes against humanity, there would be an argument to be made that he would fit into that category," Hillary said in response to a question at a Congressional hearing yesterday. 
While replying to a query by Senator Lindsey Graham about whether Assad should be viewed by the international community as a war criminal, she said," I think people have been putting forth the argument but I also think that from long experience that can complicate a resolution of a difficult complex situation because it limits options to persuade leaders, perhaps, to step down from power".
