Syrian peace talks being held in Geneva have broken up early amid opposition demands that the government address the question of a transition of power. Opposition spokesmen said they wanted the Syrian government to have time to come up with a proposal on the issue. The talks are at an impasse over the issue, with division over the future role of President Bashar al-Assad.
