GENEVA- Syrian opposition negotiators demanded on Tuesday that Syria's government spell out in detail its thoughts about a political transition and said there had been no progress on freeing detainees, who were being executed at a rate of 50 a day.

George Sabra, a negotiator from the opposition High Negotiations Committee, said the delegation had given UN mediator Staffan de Mistura a proposal on a transitional government with full executive powers. De Mistura said he wanted ideas from all sides and hoped to merge them into a common position.
