    There are no signs that either Syria or the anti-government rebels are ready to heed a ceasefire, which is being encouraged by Turkey.

    The UN/Arab League peace mediator Lakhdar Brahimi has returned to Syria after a lightning tour of neighbouring countries, and says he wants to help ensure the ceasefire takes hold and lasts throughout the Eid religious holidays beginning next Friday.
