CAIRO - Syria's newly formed opposition coalition said on Saturday it may allow an international peacekeeping force into Syria if President Bashar Assad and his allies leave power.

Coalition spokesman Walid al-Bunni, asked about statements by UN mediator Lakhdar Brahimi that any ceasefire would only hold if it was overseen by a peacekeeping mission, said the opposition could accept such a deployment if Assad leaves power first.
