ICRC: Russia says Syria may agree to 2 hr daily truce

GENEVA - Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has given "positive indications" on proposals for a daily two-hour halt in fighting in Syria, the International Committee of the Red Cross said after Lavrov met the ICRC's president on Monday.
"During the meeting the ICRC received positive indications of support on its operational priorities and its initiative of a two-hour cessation of fighting on a daily basis," ICRC spokesman Hicham Hassan told Reuters in Geneva.
The independent humanitarian agency hoped to see "concrete results" on the ground in Syria in coming days or weeks, Hassan said after ICRC chief Jakob Kellenberger and Lavrov met for 90 minutes in Moscow.
