Battle for Syrian town despite UN brokered ceasefire

There are reports of fresh demonstrations across Syria following Friday prayers. Observers say at least six civilians have been killed.

This comes despite a UN-brokered ceasefire and follows shelling on Thursday by regime forces of the rebel stronghold of Rastan, north of Damascus.

The town has been under fire for days by Syrian tanks and troops.

Our correspondent Paul Wood and cameraman Fred Scott have been back inside Syria and managed to reach the town.
