Fiji Sun - - World News -

US Sec­re­tary of State John Kerry is in Geneva in an at­tempt to bol­ster a frag­ile, par­tial cease­fire in Syria. Mr Kerry is due to hold ur­gent talks on the sit­u­a­tion with the UN en­voy to Syria, Staffan de Mis­tura, and the Saudi and Jor­da­nian for­eign min­is­ters.

A top pri­or­ity, he said, was end­ing the vi­o­lence in the north­ern city of Aleppo. More than 250 civil­ians have been killed in Aleppo in the last 10 days.

A Rus­sian de­fence of­fi­cial said ear­lier that ne­go­ti­a­tions were tak­ing place to es­tab­lish a cease­fire there.
