The Heat: Syrian ceasefire faces first major test

The cease-fire in Syria that began at midnight last Friday has brought a reduction in hostilities for the first time in the five-year war that has killed more than a quarter million people, displaced half of Syria’s population, and flooded Europe with refugees.

But with the opposition and Syrian government blaming each other for more than a dozen violations, countries sponsoring the peace process met in Geneva Monday to deal with charges that the deal is unraveling.

CCTV’s Natalie Carney reports from Istanbul.
