The head of the UN observer mission to Syria has warned that even 1,000 unarmed observers could not end the violence in the country on their own.

Arriving in Damascus, Maj Gen Robert Mood urged all sides to cease fighting and said peace must be a joint effort.

He will be followed by another 30 observers in the coming days, doubling the size of the mission. The UN has approved up to 300 observers.

Activists say at least 25 people were killed across the country on Sunday.

At least 500 have died since the ceasefire was agreed on 12 April, they say.

The government and opposition have blamed each other for the violence.

Activists say shelling continued in several provinces, while the government blamed armed terrorist groups for a series of attacks around the country.
