Syrian President Bashar al-Assad made a rare appearance on Sunday to attend prayers at the al-Hamad mosque in the capital Damascus for prayers marking the birthday of the Prophet Mohammed.

Among those alongside al-Assad were Syria's top authority "Mufti Ahmad Badreddine Hassun" and Prime Minister "Wael al-Halqi".

Al-Assad's last public appearance was on October 15 for prayers at the time marking the Muslim holiday of Eid al-Adha.

His latest appearance came as Western powers stepped up pressure on Syria's divided opposition to  attend Geneva-2 conference with at the start of a new round of diplomatic efforts to end the country's 34-month conflict.
