AFP , Thursday 5 Apr 2012

The Syrian regime has agreed to provide access to detention facilities throughout the country, the head of the International Committee of the Red Cross said Thursday.

In a statement, Jakob Kellenberger, who concluded a two-day visit to Damascus Wednesday, said Syrian authorities had agreed on procedures for visits to places of detention.

"The agreement will be put into practice with an ICRC visit to people held in Aleppo Central Prison," the statement said, without specifying a date.
