A U.N. report on how Syria's neediest civilians are often not accessible to humanitarian relief workers makes it clear that the government of President Bashar al-Assad shoulders most of the blame, a U.S. official said on Tuesday.In Washington's view, Ban's report was especially damning for the government.Ban's first report to the council on the implementation of the Feb. 22 resolution said 175,000 people remain besieged by government forces and 45,000 people trapped by opposition groups.Some 9.3 million people in Syria need humanitarian assistance, Ban said, while another 2.6 million have fled the three-year civil war, sparked in March 2011 by a revolt against Assad. The Security Council is due to discuss Ban's report on Friday.
