KUWAIT, Jan 30 (Reuters) - U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appealed on Wednesday to all combatants in Syria's civil war to stop fighting "in the name of humanity".

Speaking at an aid donor conference in Kuwait, Ban said: "I appeal to all sides and particularly the Syrian government, to stop the killing ... in the name of humanity, stop the killing, stop the violence." (Reporting by Sylvia Westall, Writing by William Maclean; Editing by Jon Boyle)
