Although billed as a potential breakthrough, the "cessation of hostilities" agreement does not take effect for a week, at a time when Assad's government is poised to win its biggest victory of the war with the backing of Russian air power.

Jones said Friday in a statement.

Modern folk hero, or menace to society? You decide. Joaquin Garcia, a 69-year-old civil Spanish servant, has been fined $30,000, or one year's salary, for not showing up to his job for six years.
