Syria Conflict: ‘Fresh Clashes Rock Damascus’

Shooting was reported in one of the main central streets and a square housing the central bank.

It is believed that there were tanks in the South-Western suburb of Midan, and clashes involving helicopters in the north and north-east of the city.

The fighting comes as un-Arab league envoy Kofi Annan prepares to hold talks with Russian president Vladimir Putin about Syria.

Russia is a key ally of Syria and the meeting comes amid mounting pressure for increased international action against the country.
