U.N.-Arab League envoy Kofi Annan, meets Syrian refugee children during his visit at Yayladagi refugee camp in Hatay, on the Turkish-Syrian border in Turkey, April 10. Annan's visit was first announced last weekend in response to Turkish calls for international help in coping with the increasing number of refugees arriving from Syria. On April 9, two Syrian refugees were killed and 19 were injured, including two Turks working at the camp.

Visitors to the Syrian refugee camp in Turkey included envoy Kofi Annan and U.S. Senators John McCain and Joseph Lieberman. Turkey is struggling to cope with 25,000 Syrians who have already crossed the border seeking refuge from the ongoing violence. Today, the cease fire is supposed to begin, but France is already calling Assad's promise a 'blatant lie.'

Updated: McCain and Lieberman repeated their calls for arming the Syrian rebels.
