GENEVA, Switzerland (UPI) -- A roadside bomb exploded in Syria Wednesday near a convoy of U.N. observers heading to Daraa province, a spokesman for U.N. envoy Kofi Annan said.

There were no casualties among the observers but several Syrian soldiers suffered injuries and were taken to a hospital, China's official Xinhua news agency reported.

Annan spokesman Ahmad Fawzi said the U.N. observers experienced what the Syrian people are suffering on a daily basis and that all forms of violence must end.

Some 40 U.N. observers are on the ground in Syria to monitor the cease-fire between the government and opposition forces.

By the end of the month, 300 observers are expected to be deployed.
