Annan condemns deadly Damascus blasts, calls for halt

Annan said in a statement issued in Geneva: "These abhorrent acts are unacceptable and the violence in Syria must stop."
"Any action that serves to escalate tensions and raise the level of violence can only be counter-productive to the interests of all parties," he said.
