Geneva - The international mediator for Syria, Kofi Annan, said on Sunday he was "shocked" by the mounting violence there despite a UN deadline for the regime's military to halt fire next week.

"I am shocked by recent reports of a surge in violence and atrocities in several towns and villages in Syria, resulting in alarming levels of casualties, refugees and displaced persons, in violation of assurances given to me," Annan said in a statement.
