Paulo Pinheiro, chairperson of the International Commission of Inquiry on Syria and Karen Koning (L) a member of the commission, attends the Human Rights Council meeting in Geneva September 16, 2013. Killings, crimes and other abuses by rebels, including foreign fighters invoking jihad, or holy war, have increased in northern Syria, U.N. human rights investigators said on Monday. Pinheiro, reporting on suspected war crimes since July 15, also said President Bashar al-Assad's government had continued a relentless campaign of air bombardment and artillery shelling across the country.
