Syrian ceasefire due to come into force A ceasefire brokered by United Nations envoy Kofi Annan (left) to end the bloodshed that has killed almost 10,000 people in Syria is due to come into effect today, with a complete end to fighting set for 48 hours later. China has urged Syria to honour its ceasefire commitment, after Damascus said it wanted guarantees from armed rebels before it pulled its troops back. While Damascus agreed to the ceasefire, it has since said it will only carry out its side of the bargain if rebels first provide written guarantees to stop fighting, a demand rejected by the leader of the rebel army, Colonel Riyadh al-Asaad.
