UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Sunday urged world powers to work harder to end the nightmare in Syria as the Security Council met for urgent talks on the escalating war.

"What excuse is there for anything less than determined action to stop the mayhem? How much longer will all those with influence allow such cruelty to continue? I urge all involved to work harder for an end to the nightmare," Ban said.
