Russia called for a political transition in Syria, while Switzerland said it would petition the International Criminal Court to probe war crimes in the country.

The Syrian Observatory for Human Rights said Regime warplanes carried out air strikes near the capital and a car bomb blew up in Damascus province, while gunmen shot dead an athletics champion.

A day after UN-Arab League special envoy Lakhdar Brahimi met Russian Deputy Foreign Minister Mikhail Bogdanov and US Deputy Secretary of State William Burns, Moscow repeated its long-held position that only Syrians can decide their fate.
