The international mediator for Syria, Kofi Annan, was due in Turkey tomorrow for a visit to Syrian refugee camps near the border.

The former UN chief is expected in Tehran on Wednesday.

Around 25,000 Syrian refugees are currently housed in camps in Turkey's three provinces bordering Syria, where civilians have been fleeing the government's deadly repression of pro-democracy protests for more than a year.

Annan, the top mediator for the United Nations and the Arab League, has brokered a deal whereby Syrian troops should withdraw from protest cities by Tuesday, with a complete end to fighting set for 48 hours later.
