GENEVA —

U.N.-Arab League mediator Lakhdar Brahimi opened direct talks between the Syrian government and opposition Saturday in hopes of breaking the impasse in peace talks.

The talks aimed at finding some way out of Syria's civil war continued for a sixth consecutive day with a face-to-face meeting at the U.N.'s European headquarters in Geneva while the violence kept escalating back home for Syrians.

Despite the hostility between the two delegations that have produced little more than public displays of acrimony and sparring before the TV cameras, the opposition said it continued to hold out hope for a political solution.

Opposition spokesman Louay Safi said as he arrived: "We hope that something positive will happen. But we'll see."
