With nearly 11 million Syrians in need of humanitarian help, U.N. Security Council members are pushing Russia and China to support a compromise draft resolution to boost cross-border access and threaten sanctions on those that stand in the way.Russia, supported by China, has already vetoed four resolutions threatening any action against its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, amid a 3-year civil war that has killed at least 150,000 people.The three countries are continuing negotiations with Russia and China on the draft resolution this week.The United Nations says some 10.8 million people in Syria need help, of which 4.7 million are in hard-to-reach areas, while another 3 million have fled the conflict.
