Seven observers have been deployed in Syria, two will be deployed Monday and the entire 30 member team will deploy over the course of next week, UN Envoy Kofi Annan's spokesman said Friday.

The deployment is the first stage of introducing UN peacekeepers into Syria to try to strengthen a recent but fragile cease-fire between the Syrian government and the rebels.
