International peace envoy Lakhdar Brahimi has met Syria's embattled president Bashar al-Assad.

Brahimi, who represents the UN and the Arab League, is in Damascus to press both the government and the rebels to observe a truce over the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha.

Brahimi said he had proposed a 3-day ceasefire over the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha, which which begins on Friday and lasts over the weekend, and was waiting for a response from Assad's government.

He told reporters that some members of the opposition whom he had met were open to the idea of a ceasefire only if the Syrian government committed to it.
