U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday again asked the Security Council to formally request that the International Criminal Court (ICC) begin investigations of war crimes in Syria.Describing the situation in Aleppo as "heartbreaking," Ban said he was disappointed that the council failed to take action during a meeting on Saturday when two resolutions were defeated.The 15-member council has the authority to refer a country to the Hague-based ICC for war crimes investigations as it has done for Libya and Sudan's troubled Darfur region.More than 300,000 people have died in the five-year conflict in Syria.
