The first day of a major Syrian peace conference in Switzerland has ended amid bitter divisions over the future of President Bashar al-Assad.

The US said Syria could not be saved while he was in power. Syria's team insisted: "President Assad is staying."

The talks now move to Geneva tomorrow, with the UN saying it was hopeful of some movement on local ceasefires and access to humanitarian aid.

Syria's conflict has left more than 100,000 dead and millions displaced.
