The UN advance monitoring team is on the ground in Syria, getting down to the business of making sure that a fragile ceasefire holds.

Six team members arrived in Damascus on Sunday, with more to follow.

By the end of the week the UN expects to be about 30 observers from its peacekeeping department in Syria.

Meanwhile, violence in the country continues with the Syrian government shelling the city of Homs.
