The UN has withdrawn its invitation to Iran to join this week's peace conference on the Syria crisis.

UN spokesman criticised Tehran for failing to back the plan to form a Syrian transitional government, which is the basis of the conference.

The invitation to Iran, a key ally of the Syrian regime, angered the US and the Western-backed Syrian opposition.

The peace conference, due to begin tomorrow, is the biggest diplomatic effort to end the three-year conflict.
