Today’s edition of quick hits:
* Syria’s assurances that its forces are complying with a cease-fire “have been condemned as a ‘blatant lie’ by France, as 32 people were reportedly killed even after guns were supposed to be silent.”
* Afghanistan: “In a further sign that the insurgents’ spring offensive is under way, suicide bombers struck in western and southern Afghanistan on Tuesday, killing 16 people, according to Afghan officials in Herat and Helmand, where the attacks took place.”
* Remember the Eurozone fears? They haven’t fully gone away.
* Remember George Zimmerman’s legal team? They have gone away.
