Syria unrest: Kofi Annan sending team to continue talks

UN and Arab League envoy to Syria Kofi Annan has said he is sending a team to Damascus to continue discussions regarding the deployment of monitors in the country.

Mr Annan was speaking after a briefing with the UN Security Council regarding talks with President Bashir al-Assad in Damascus last week.

He told reporters that once he felt "sufficient progress" had been made, he would "be prepared" to go back for further talks.
