On Conan Monday night, after a joke about Cam Newton elicited just a few pity laughs from the audience, Conan O'Brien knew he had to explain himself.

In a report to the U. N. Human Rights Council, published Monday, the Independent International Commission of Inquiry on the Syrian Arab Republic detailed the findings of an investigation over more than four years, which included hundreds of interviews with former detainees, family members of the deceased, and former regime functionaries.

“The government has committed the crimes against humanity of extermination, murder, rape or other forms of sexual violence, torture, imprisonment, enforced disappearance and other inhuman acts,” it added.
