A total of 135 people were killed in the first week of a partial truce in Syria in areas covered by the deal, highlighting its fragile nature just days before the United Nation’s attempts to reconvene peace talks.

UN envoy Staffan de Mistura said the talks, originally due to begin tomorrow in Geneva, would get off to a staggered start later in the week, with delegates arriving from Wednesday onwards.

The UN said the delay was due to "logistical and technical reasons and also for the ceasefire to better settle down".
