Syria rebel leaders hold talks at UN

Syrian rebel leaders have met for the first time with the United Nations Security Council to discuss the country's two-year civil war.

They said they were prepared to take part in peace talks if the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad agreed to a political transition, and they appealed to the Russians to end their supply of arms.

The BBC's Nick Bryant reports from UN headquarters in New York.
