Syria has plunged into a full-scale civil war - so says the head of the UN peacekeeping operation there. He added that fighting had reached a previously unseen ferocity, as government forces seek to blunt a nationwide offensive by the rebels, who had withdrawn from the internationally-backed ceasefire.
Meanwhile, U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is alleging that a new shipment of attack helicopters were en-route from Russia to Syria, but refused to reveal her sources. The Pentagon was subsequently put in an awkward position, admitting it had no knowledge of any such shipment.
