A day after Syria reportedly agreed to an international peace plan, Assad is sticking to his word. If you trust government officials, that is. The official told the Associated Press that troops were pulling out from calm cities ahead of the April 10 deadline. Opposition in Damascus, however, denied the claims, saying that 20 were dead in a fresh round of violence. In more tense areas, troops are reportedly heading to the outskirts of the action. Assad has a long history of breaking promises when it comes to ceasefires.
