UNITED NATIONS - UN-Arab League mediator Kofi Annan and the UN peacekeeping chief told the Security Council the Syrian army is using fewer heavy arms but remains deployed in towns around the country as fighting and mass arrests continue, diplomats said on Tuesday.

Annan told the 15-nation council via video link from Geneva that his six-point peace plan is not an "open ended commitment (but) a possible last chance to avoid civil war," a council diplomat told Reuters on condition of anonymity.
