Syrian rivals weigh UN plan for new constitution

Syrian rivals weigh UN plan for new constitutionRival Syrian delegations on Wednesday weighed a UN proposal on developing a new constitution for the war-ravaged country, as a new round of peace talks entered a second day. The sixth round of UN-backed negotiations in Geneva is the latest drive to bring a political solution to the conflict which has claimed more than 320,000 lives since 2011. The talks opened with tensions high over a US charge that Syrian President Bashar al-Assad’s government was using a prison crematorium to hide evidence of thousands of murdered detainees.
