As the Syrian crisis escalates, appearing now to be spilling over its borders into Lebanon and Turkey, international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has arrived in Damascus.

Brahimi is attempting to establish a ceasefire in Syria during the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

Turkish authorities had been criticised for their military response to cross-border shelling from Syria, but attitudes may be softening, now Ankara's support for a ceasefire has been established.
