Syria has accepted a proposal crafted by Kofi Annan that aims to end the bloodshed roiling the country, the envoy's spokesman said on yesterday, in a move cautiously welcomed by Western states.

As monitors reported almost 10,000 dead in the year-long uprising, and with at least another 17 people killed yesterday, UN-Arab League envoy Annan in Beijing cautioned that implementing his six-point plan is the key to peace.

Annan's plan includes calls for a daily two-hour humanitarian ceasefire and access to all areas affected by the fighting in Syria.

Annan's spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said in a statement issued in Geneva that the Syrian government has written to the Joint Special Envoy Kofi Annan accepting his six-point plan, endorsed by the United Nations Security Council.
