BEIRUT - Syrian state television said President Bashar Assad told peace envoy Kofi Annan on Tuesday that "terrorist groups" had stepped up activities including killing and kidnapping across the country.

In a headline flashed over its programming, the station said states that fund, arm and harbor terrorists must abide by the plan put forward six weeks ago by Annan. He was in Damascus attempting to salvage it after a massacre which the United Nations says killed 108 people in central Syria last week.
