The U.N. Security Council lists Syria's army and intelligence agency and an allied militia as sexual war criminals for assaults on women and children, along with the al-Qaida movement in Mali and various African rebel movements.

The "name and shame" tally of sexual predators and outlaws was in a report adopted unanimously Wednesday by the U.N. Security Council as part of a debate on "Women in Peace and Security."

The report cited Syria's army, intelligence services and the government-controlled Shabbiha militia.

In Mali, where French troops have largely ousted an Islamic occupation of the northern part of the country, the U.N. list named Al-Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb, Ansar Dine, and the lesser-known National Movement for the Liberation of Azawad and the Movement for uniqueness and jihad in West Africa.
