Summary: 

The UN Secretary General has accused all parties in Syria's civil war of "flagrant violations" of international law over the delivery of aid. Ban Ki-moon urged the Security Council to act to implement a resolution passed in February demanding greater access. In his second report to the council on the resolution, Mr Ban said almost 3.5m civilians were being denied vital aid, including medicine and medical care. (..)Earlier on Wednesday, UN humanitarian chief Valerie Amos told Reuters news agency that hopes for a political deal to end Syria's war were fading and it was getting harder every day to send aid to trapped and displaced civilians.
