Friday News Roundup - International

Ukraine's prime minister and cabinet both amid continued unrest. The trial of former President Mohamed Morsi begins in Egypt. And Syria talks wind down in Switzerland.

In Ukraine, a bitter standoff between the government and opposition protesters showed no signs of resolution. A week ahead of the Sochi Olympics, Russia announced it detained two alleged accomplices in the December suicide bombings in Volgograd. Activists said fighting in Syria killed nearly 1,900 people this week while peace talks were held in Switzerland. In Egypt, ousted President Mohamed Morsi went on trial. And in South Sudan, both sides accused each other of violating a ceasefire. A panel of journalists joins Diane for analysis of the week's top international news stories.
