Concern is growing for civilians trapped without food, water, and electricity. The meetings come as the UN warns, from a humanitarian perspective, the solution is urgently needed.

The US and Russia, backing opposite sides in this war, insist a deal is still possible. Officials say issues to be resolved are, quote, highly technical and complicated.
As the two sides try to narrow their differences on a Syrian peace plan, the US has warned that their patience is running out and discussions can't go on forever.
