Fighter jets and tanks unleashed deadly new raids in hotspots across Syria as the country, as the head of the now-defunct UN observer team in Syria left Damascus.

The observer mission officially ended on at midnight last Sunday amid escalating violence and divisions at the UN Security Council over how to end a conflict now in its 18th month.

The new international envoy Lakhdar Brahimi held talks with UN leaders, pledging: "We will not spare any effort" but saying he was "scared" about the scale of the task confronting him.
