Western powers have reacted sceptically to Syria's acceptance of the peace plan put forward by UN envoy Kofi Annan.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said President Bashar al-Assad would be judged by events.

"Given Assad's history of over-promising and under-delivering, that commitment must now be matched by immediate actions."
