A deal unveiled by Russia's military to set up safe zones in Syria has come into force.

The accord on four zones was reached at Thursday's talks in Kazakhstan between Russia and Iran which back Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

Turkey, which supports Syrian rebel groups, agreed to act as a guarantor. Moscow says the US, the UN and Saudi Arabia also support the idea.

But the main Syrian opposition grouping says it has little faith in the deal.

In a statement, the High Negotiations Committee, said the plan lacked "safeguards and compliance mechanisms".
