The UN General Assembly has adopted a resolution calling for a political transition in Syria and condemning the government's use of heavy weapons.

The resolution, which is not binding, passed easily, although a similar one last year received more support.

Russia was fiercely opposed to the text, which it said was unbalanced and failed to address adequately atrocities allegedly committed by rebel groups.

The resolution was drafted by Arab states who have championed the rebels.
