Syria: "More than 200 dead in the last 24 hours"

Opposition activists in Syria say that more than 200 people have been killed in the latest fighting, many of them in Damascus.

Government forces claim to have beaten back what they say were terrorist groups infiltrating the capital, but rebel fighters say they are launching attacks in different parts of the city.

Jim Muir reports from neighbouring Lebanon.
