GENEVA- UN Syria envoy Staffan de Mistura said on Saturday he expected "hiccups" in a cessation of hostilities that came into force at midnight Damascus time (2200 GMT) on Friday, and urged restraint in curbing any new outbreaks of fighting.
"There is a high chance we should expect such hiccups" in the pause in fighting brokered by the United States and Russia, he told reporters in Geneva after briefing the United Nations Security Council in New York via videolink.
"The important point is whether those incidents will be brought quickly under control and contained. That is going to be the test."
