A ceasefire has come into force in Syria amid doubts expressed by Western countries about the government's willingness to stick to it. Correspondents say the truce appears to be largely holding, with no reports of casualties or deaths so far. The Syrian government and the armed opposition have both said they will abide by the ceasefire, but reserved the right to respond if attacked.
