Peace plan fails to end Syria strife

Cities are being shelled and neighbourhoods raided, a day after Damascus accepted UN-Arab League initiative.

    There has been no let up in violence in Syria even 24 hours after Damascus agreed to accept a joint UN-Arab League peace plan.

    Cities are still being shelled and neighbourhoods are still being raided, and there is no sign of an army withdrawal from urban areas.
