Officials have confirmed that veteran Algerian diplomat Lakhdar Brahimi is the new UN-Arab League envoy for Syria.

The 78 year old will succeed Kofi Annan, who resigned earlier this month after his six-point peace plan failed to achieve a meaningful ceasefire.

China was the first nation to give its reaction, promising to "co-operate positively" with Brahimi.

However, fighting has continued unabated in the northern city of Aleppo and the capital, Damascus.
