Unrest flares as observers tour Syria

Arab League monitors are visiting three more troubled Syrian cities to check if government forces are complying with a peace plan.

The observers, split into teams of about 10, travelled to Hama, Idlib and Deraa, where anti-government protesters continue to clash with security forces.

They earlier visited Homs - a focal point of the unrest.

Meanwhile, unconfirmed reports said violence had broken out in the capital Damascus, which was also being visited by monitors.
