UN-Arab League envoy Lakhdar Brahimi told the UN Security Council on Monday that the Syrian civil war is worsening and the country faces a growing food crisis, envoys at a closed meeting said.

Brahimi told the 15-nation council that the Syrian government estimates there are 5,000 foreign fighters in the country and is increasingly portraying the conflict as a "foreign conspiracy," envoys at the meeting told AFP.
