The top UN human rights official called on Tuesday for tens of thousands of detainees to be released from Syria's prisons and for torturers to be brought to court as part of a lasting peace.

Former Syrian detainees also testified before the UN Human Rights Council about their suffering and concern for men Mens Air Jordans 6 Gatorade Shoes , women and children still in custody of the government or of extremist groups.

"Today in a sense the entire country has become a torture-chamber; a place of savage horror and absolute injustice," said UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein.

"Ensuring accountability, establishing the truth and providing reparations must happen if the Syrian people are ever to find reconciliation and peace," he told the Geneva forum.

Zeid urged the warring sides to halt torture and executions and to free detainees or at least provide basic information to their families. The Syrian government delegation did not attend but has denied allegations of systematic torture. The envoy from Russia, its main ally, called the event a "waste of valuable time."

Noura Al-Ameer Mens Air Jordans 6 Gatorade , a former detainee and activist, cited the case of Ranya, a woman detained in 2012 with six of her children and still missing.

"Many other women are detained with their children, detained in places not even fit for animals, let alone fit for children," al-Ameer told the council.

Paulo Pinheiro Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade 2017 , chairman of the UN Commission of Inquiry, noted that its 2014 report found that the scale of deaths in prisons indicated the Assad government was responsible for "extermination as a crime against humanity."

"Too many voices have been silenced by enforced disappearance, arbitrary detention, or death," he said.

Zeid and Pinheiro pledged support to a new UN mechanism which will collect evidence and prepare criminal files for prosecution by national authorities or an international court.

The government detains 87 percent of those in custody, said Fadel Abdul Ghani Mens Jordans 6 Retro Gatorade , executive director of the Syrian Network for Human Rights. "The regime is trumping everyone else with nearly 92,000 individuals that are still inside its detention centers," he said.

Mazen Darwish, a lawyer freed in 2015 after three years in jail, voiced outrage at the lack of international action.

"We are speaking of a daily massacre going on for six years. Why are we here? Today there are women, men Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade Sizes 12 , children, innocent people who are being killed under torture ... It is strange that in front of all this evidence we do not see a real movement."

MADRID, Dec. 9 (Xinhua) -- Real Madrid claimed an easy win at home over a decaffeinated Sevilla in La Liga on Saturday, while Valencia also won to put the pressure on Barcelona.

Cristiano Ronaldo showed off the Golden Ball trophy he had been awarded during the week and celebrated with two goals as Madrid netted five in the first half, in which Sevilla seemed to be half asleep.

Nacho Fernandez scored following a corner after just three minutes and 20 minutes later Ronaldo doubled the lead off a pass from Marco Asensio.

He then scored a penalty, before further goals from Tony Kroos and Achraf Hakimi sealed the win by the 42nd minute.

Valencia moved to within two points of league leaders FC Barcelona Mens Jordans 6 Gatorade Cheap , who visit Villarreal on Sunday, thanks to a narrow 2-1 win at home to Celta.

Simone Zaza's 10th goal of the season put Valencia ahead midway through the first half, only for Iago Aspas to equalize a minute after the break.

It looked as if the points would be shared only for Dani Parejo to win the match from the penalty spot after Pablo Hernandez had handled.

Adrian Lopez celebrated his 100th appearance for Deportivo la Coruna with the goal which gave his side a well-deserved 1-0 win at home to Leganes, while Getafe and Eibar made history as each side fielded a Japanese player (Takashi Inui ad Gaku Shibasaki) during the 90 minutes of their game, which ended 0-0 and had little else to recommend it.

"And our aim is to make military mobility a new flagship for the NATO-EU cooperation," he added.
