Syrian forces are bombarding a town in the province of Hama for the 17th straight day as the Arab League discusses a peace plan to end a year of fighting in Syria.

The UN and the Arab League have called on Syria to adopt the plan but Syria has said it will not address any initiative from the Arab League, from which it was suspended last year.

The plan put forward by UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan calls for a commitment from all parties to stop armed violence; a daily two-hour ceasefire to allow aid to get through; and media access to areas affected by fighting.

On Tuesday, the UN said the Syrian government had agreed to accept the plan - a claim met by scepticism from anti-government activists.

The Annan plan contains no timetable for implementation, but for it to get any momentum; it must produce results on the ground in a matter of days.
