Syrian clashes break ceasefire

The British-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Co-ordination Committees reported shelling and shooting mostly in the northern province of Aleppo, the eastern region of Deir el-Zour, Daraa to the south and suburbs of the capital Damascus.
Today's fighting comes a day after two car bombs and sporadic fighting left more than 100 people dead, the groups said.
Syria mediator Lakhdar Brahimi, the UN-Arab League envoy, had mediated a four-day ceasefire that began on Friday to mark the Muslim feast of Eid al-Adha.
The ceasefire looks unlikely to be a springboard for ending the 19-month conflict that has claimed more than 35,000 lives.
