Savouring a morning without bombs in Syria as truce takes hold

Syrian children play on a slide at a park in the rebel-held town of Douma, on the eastern edges of the capital Damascus on February 27, 2016, on the first day of the landmark ceasefire agreementFor many people across battle-torn Syria, Saturday morning was unusual: for the first time in years, they could take a quiet neighbourhood stroll as their children played in the park. Less than a day into a landmark ceasefire deal in parts of the country, residents say their usual routine has been thrown off without the usual sounds of artillery, rocket attacks, or helicopter-borne barrel bombs. "We're totally lost today, our daily schedule has completely changed!" jokes Hasaan Abu Nuh, an activist from the town of Talbisseh in Homs province.
