 An explosion has hit a Syrian military truck escorting a convoy of UN observers near the city of Deraa, just seconds after UN staff had passed by.

The head of the UN team, Maj Gen Robert Mood, was in the convoy, but neither he nor any of the other monitors was hurt.

Eyewitnesses said at least three Syrian soldiers were wounded while the windows of the truck were shattered.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General, Ban Ki-moon, said such incidents could threaten the future of the UN mission in Syria.
