International Arab League-UN envoy, Kofi Annan arrived to Syria on Monday amid growing violence over the massacre that killed 108 people in the town of Houla.
Annan vowed to have “serious” discussions with the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and said he had a message for “Everyone with a gun”: To halt the violence. Meanwhile rebel leaders already said Annan’s six-point plan is “dead” after the bloodbath in Houla, a suburb of the anti-government of Homs.
Al-Assad’s regime insist that they were not behind the massacre. UN monitors in Syria said that 49 children were among those that fell on Houla’s attack. Annan is scheduled to meet with al-Assad and senior officials; he will also review the work of the UN monitoring mission in the country. (AV)
