Syria Peace Talks Break Down as Assault on Aleppo Begins

Hosted by

So-called Syrian "peace talks" have broken down almost before they got started. The UN mediator asked for a pause in the violence to allow for humanitarian aid. Instead, the Syrian army launched a major offensive — supported by Russian bombardment. Patrick McDonnell was in Geneva. He's Beirut Bureau Chief for the Los Angeles Times.
