UN council reaches tentative agreement on Syria

UNITED NATIONS (AP) -- France's UN Ambassador says the Security Council has reached a tentative agreement on a resolution that would expand the number of UN cease-fire observers in Syria from 30 to 300.

Ambassador Gerard Araud says the text of a resolution negotiated over many hours Friday would be sent to capitals overnight and the Council would meet at 11 a.m. EDT Saturday for a vote.

The final draft merged two rival texts proposed by Russia and European Council members.
