New observers have joined the existing team of the UN Supervision Mission in Syria. They are expected to oversee the peace plan put forward by UN and Arab League special envoy Kofi Annan.

More than 100 UN observers have been deployed in Syria to inspect the truce between the government and armed rebels. The daily death toll in Syria has declined as the number of observers has risen. There are now small teams of UN observers stationed in Homs, Hama, Daraa, Idlib and Aleppo.

A full team of 300 is expected by the end of the month. The UN says the country’s conflict has claimed the lives of more than 9-thousand people since March last year.
