BEIRUT - A convoy of UN vehicles sent to pick up 21 peacekeepers held by Syrian rebels in the southern village of Jamla has arrived at a neighboring village but is not able to reach their location due to shelling in the area, a rebel spokesman said on Friday.

Abu Essam Taseel said three Syrian army tanks and two military cars had pulled back from around Jamla but President Bashar Assad's forces were still deployed around it and bombarding the region.
