BEIRUT - A ceasefire in a Syrian town near the Lebanese border and two villages has broken down after renewed shelling, the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights monitoring group said on Saturday.

The truce between the Syrian army and the Lebanese group Hezbollah on the one side, and Syrian insurgents on the other, came into effect in the town of Zabadani and the Shi'ite Muslim villages of Kefraya and al-Foua on Thursday.

It had been extended late on Friday but broke down by the morning, said Rami Abdulrahman, who runs the Britain-based Observatory.
