Syria ceasefire holding 'by and large', says UN's Ban

A UNICEF employee measures the arm of a malnourished child in the besieged Syrian town of Madaya on January 14, 2016The UN chief said Monday a fragile Syria ceasefire was holding “by and large” despite “incidents” of fighting at the weekend, as a UN-backed taskforce was set to meet to evaluate accusations of breaches. “As of now I can tell you that by and large the cessation of hostilities is holding even though we have experienced some incidents,” United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told reporters in Geneva. Ban said he had received a letter from a main Syrian opposition group “expressing concern” about violations but said containing them was the key, in part, to ensure continued delivery of humanitarian aid to besieged Syrians.
