MOSCOW - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, speaking with UN-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan by phone on Tuesday, urged Syria's government and its opponents to stop violence and repeated a call for an investigation into the killings in the town of Houla.

Lavrov "expressed deep alarm in connection with the tragedy in Houla and underscored that all Syrian sides should reject violence without delay with the aim of preventing such incidents in the future," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
