The first six United Nations peace monitors have arrived in Syria. According to Russian UN Ambassador Vilaty Churkin, they will be followed by another 25, who will include a Russian officer.

The office of the Syrian President said the observers cannot expect to work in safety unless they coordinate their action with the authorities. It also said the Syrian government reserves the right to modify the nationality make-up of observation teams.
