A small advance group of UN monitors is preparing to go to Syria to oversee the ceasefire, hours after the Security Council voted for its deployment.

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon stated that he would make firm proposals in days for a larger group of about 250 people.

According to activists, at least 20 people were killed as violence flared yesterday in Homs and at a funeral in Aleppo.

The US ambassador to the UN, Susan Rice, condemned the bloodshed saying it raises renewed doubts about the sincerity of the regime's commitment to the ceasefire.
