Local ceasefires in Syria may be the best way to ease the suffering of civilians in the absence of a political solution to the three-and-a-half year conflict, researchers from the London School of Economics said Monday.In a report that looked at more than 35 local negotiations across Syria since the start of the crisis, they said the international community should support such solutions, even if they have sometimes been problematic. While two rounds of peace talks between the government and the political opposition this year failed to halt the war, local ceasefires have brought some relief. Syria's conflict has killed close to 200,000 people and more than 3 million refugees have fled the country, according to the United Nations.
