President Assad firm on Syria opposition 'terrorism'

Syria's President Assad has told peace envoy Kofi Annan there can be no political solution to the conflict in the country while "terrorists" are spreading chaos.

The former UN secretary-general met the president for talks in Damascus aimed at ending the violence, and during his visit he will also meet representatives of the opposition.

Activists say more than 60 people were killed by government forces on Saturday.
