SYRIA-UN:U.N. Security Council to meet Sunday on Syria massacre
At least 109 people, including many children, were killed in the Houla attack.
The council meeting was called after Russia rejected a French and British proposal for a statement condemning the massacre, diplomats said on condition of anonymity.
Moscow, which remains a staunch ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, told other members of the 15-nation council that it wanted a briefing first from General Robert Mood, the head of the unarmed U.N. monitoring mission in Syria, envoys said.
