John Kerry announces agreement to ‘cessation of hostilities’ in Syria for the delivery of aid

World powers have agreed to a ‘cessation of hostilities’ in Syria, due to begin in a week’s time, after a crisis meeting was held in Munich.
US Secretary of State John Kerry made the announcement just after midnight on Friday morning that leaders had agreed to ‘accelerate, expand’ humanitarian aid in Syria.
Both the al-Assad government and the Syrian Opposition agreed to the deal which will see a humanitarian task force created to deliver aid to cities such as Aleppo, where moderate rebels have been beseiged by the Syrian government, aided by Russian airstrikes.
