To match Analysis SYRIA-CRISIS/ANNAN
United Nations Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan speaks with the media after Security Council consultations at U.N. headquarters in New York in this June 7, 2012 file photo. Scarred by his failure to stop Rwanda's genocide nearly two decades ago, Annan faces another bloody debacle on his watch as his mediation efforts founder in Syria. Steeped in a culture of seeking consensus even when it looks unlikely, the soft-spoken former U.N. secretary-general is again at the point where his diplomatic efforts are being overtaken by mass killings rather than being seen as a step to peace.
