The head of the UN Stabilisation Mission in Syria (UNSMIS) says the mission has been suspended because of escalating violence.

Gen Robert Mood said that UNSMIS was ready to work with all parties to bring an end to the violence.

He also said violence had intensified in the preceding 10 days, putting his unarmed observers at significant risk.
