UNITED NATIONS - The size and sophistication of some recent bomb attacks in Syria suggest that "established terrorist groups" may have been behind them, the UN chief said on Friday in a letter in which he urged states not to supply arms to government or rebel forces.

"The overall situation in Syria remains extremely serious and there has been only small progress on some issues," UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the Security Council in the letter obtained by Reuters.

"There is a continuing crisis on the groups, characterized by regular violence, deteriorating humanitarian conditions, human rights violations, and continued political confrontation," he said.
