AFP , Thursday 4 Oct 2012

Syria has recognised that its deadly shelling of a Turkish town was a "tragic accident" and has vowed that it will not happen again, its close ally Russia said Thursday.

The Syrian authorities told Russia "what happened at the border with Turkey was a tragic accident, and that it will not happen again. ... We think it is of principal importance that Damascus states this officially," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said.
