U.N. aid chief suggests more intervention in humanitarian emergencies

Amos cited Syria as an example after the United Nations Security Council had to adopt two resolutions to authorize the delivery of cross-border humanitarian aid in a bid to reach millions of people in need as a result of the country's civil war.
