Need to Know News: Nations to seek cease-fire as slaughter in Syria rages on; 35,000 Postal Service jobs on the chopping block

Each day, we here at "Piers Morgan Tonight" put together the news you need to know – from what happened last night to what will happen today.

For February 24, 2012 – Nations to seek cease-fire as slaughter in Syria rages on, 35,000 Postal Service jobs are on the chopping block and an Indiana lawmaker refuses to honor Girl Scouts...

• Nations to seek cease-fire as slaughter in Syria rages on: "World powers convening Friday in Tunisia are mapping out a plan to deliver humanitarian aid, call for a cease-fire and give political legitimacy to the Syrian opposition, while details emerged that Arab nations have begun supplying arms to Syrian rebels, sources told CNN."

• 35,000 Postal Service jobs on the chopping block: "The U.S. Postal Service announced on Thursday new plans to consolidate or close 223 mail processing plants, putting 35,000 jobs at stake starting in late May or June. The move would save $2.1 billion and is part of the agency's broader effort to save $20 billion in the next three years."

John Edwards sex tape to be destroyed after settlement reached: "A former aide and a former mistress of one-time presidential candidate John Edwards have settled a civil lawsuit between them that, among other measures, mandates the imminent destruction of sex tapes featuring Edwards and the woman."

• Indiana lawmaker refuses to honor Girl Scouts: "Indiana State Rep. Bob Morris set off a firestorm after he told colleagues he wanted to check the facts before signing a fairly routine state resolution. It was meant to recognize the 100th anniversary of The Girl Scouts of America and honor 'the strong positive influence it has had on the American woman.'"

• Knicks, Jeremy Lin struggle in first real test: "The Heat won their eighth straight game 102-88 while holding Lin to eight turnovers and eight points on a dreadful 1-for-11 performance from the field. Miami used smothering defense to disrupt Lin and the entire Knicks team. The Knicks must now adjust while the Heat look to be on cruise control."
