Syria government, opposition accept U.S.-Russia proposed truce

DAMASCUS, Syria -- The Syrian government and the main umbrella for Syrian opposition and rebel groups announced on Tuesday they both conditionally accept a proposed U.S.-Russian cease fire that the international community hopes will bring them back to the negotiating table in Geneva for talks to end the war.

The announcement came after the United States and Russia agreed on a new ceasefire for Syria that will take effect on Saturday, even as major questions over enforcement of that truce have been left unresolved.
