UNESCO officials are to debate on Thursday whether to remove Syria from a human rights committee as the Syrian government proceeds with its deadly crackdown on protesters.
A commission of the U.N. cultural body's executive board was expected to take up the subject Wednesday, but postponed it until Thursday.
Several countries want to unseat Syria from the Committee on Conventions and Recommendations. The committee deals with multiple issues, but has a strong human rights component.
Syria was named to the committee in November. Countries ranging from the United States and Britain to Qatar and Kuwait are now mounting a campaign to remove Syria.
