In a second measure, representatives voted 392 to 3 for a resolution urging the White House to urge the U.N. Security Council to immediately establish a Syrian war crimes tribunal, calling actions by the Syria's government and others "gross violations of international law amounting to war crimes and crimes against humanity".
