U.N. Chief: Syria Agrees to Rules

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says Syria has agreed to rules governing U.N. monitors, and an agreement is expected to be signed in Damascus. Earlier, Annan accused the nation of failing to keep to the U.N. peace plan. After a brief lull, violence is once again escalating. He also criticized Syria for not releasing detainees, not negotiating humanitarian access, and not allowing U.N. observers into Homs.The agreement calls for more observers, an increase in the current team of 30 to 300.
