Syrian forces strike on Turkey

Syrian forces strike on Turkey
Syrian government forces have reportedly opened fire at a refugee camp in Turkey, killing two people and wounding more.

The violence comes as hope for a peaceful resolution to the Syrian crisis appear to be fading.

Rebels rejected a last-minute demand from President Assad ahead of Tuesday's peace deal deadline.

France criticised the demands as "unacceptable".

The regime had earlier refused to withdraw from flashpoints throughout the country without written guarantees from rebels to end attacks and a promise from foreign states not to fund them.

Former Foreign Office minister Lord Malloch-Brown said the events had damaged efforts to reach a peaceful settlement: "I think it’s under a lot of pressure and it’s very uncertain as to what the outcome will be."

But he insisted if Russia support Kofi Annan's peace plan as China did earlier today: "then Syria will confront the fact that it is pretty much internationally isolated."
