    With violence reported by both the opposition and Syrian authorities, the UN-brokered ceasefire seems to be rapidly unravelling.

    Shelling of the city of Homs has reportedly continued, and activists say security forces have opened fire on protesters. Clashes between the army and rebels were reported in the northern province of Idlib on Monday.

    Under the peace plan drafted by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, both government forces a opposition fighters were to cease hostilities by 6am last Thursday.

    Opposition activists say more than 60 people, most of them civilians, have been killed since the deadline.

    Meanwhile, Syrian state media have reported many acts of violence by "armed terrorist groups", resulting in the death of more than a dozen security personnel. 

    UN human rights investigators said on Monday that they had received reports of shelling and arrests by Syrian forces since the ceasefire, as well as the executions of some soldiers captured by rebel forces, although the level of violence was generally lower.
