The U.N.-brokered Syrian peace talks have hit a new snag today with opposition delegates refusing to meet directly with government counterparts. The two sides were due for their first face-to-face talks in Geneva after an opening round of speeches on Wednesday.

U.N. envoy Lakdar Brahimi is shuttling between the two sides today to keep the meeting alive.
