The US President Barack Obama has announced an aid deal aimed at supporting opponents of Bashar Al-Assad's Syrian regime.
The US, which has ruled out arming rebel forces, will send communication and medical equipment to non-violent activists.
The White House said it had seen a 'notable reduction' in violence following the ceasefire deal brokered by UN envoy Kofi Annan - but reiterated calls on the Syrian government to end all hostilities.
