Obama, UN envoy voice alarm at 'fraying' Syria truce

A Syrian man evacuates an area following a reported airstrike on April 22, 2016 in the rebel-held neighbourhood of Hayy Aqyul in AleppoSyria’s fragile ceasefire is in grave peril, US President Barack Obama and the UN’s special envoy warned Friday, as violence surged in the war-ravaged country’s second city Aleppo. The truce “is still in effect, but it is in great trouble if we don’t act quickly,” the United Nations’ top envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura told reporters in Geneva, where he is mediating faltering peace talks. A landmark partial ceasefire, which was negotiated by the United States and Russia and took effect on February 27, had dramatically curtailed violence across much of Syria and raised hopes that a lasting deal could be struck in Geneva to end the bloodshed.
