Turkey calls for truce in Syria for Muslim holiday
Turkey's foreign minister has joined an appeal for a cease-fire to stop the bloodshed in Syria during a Muslim holiday.

 

Ahmet Davutoglu on Friday urged both Syrian forces and rebels to end hostilities "at least" through the four-day Eid al-Adha holiday that begins on Oct. 26. He said the sides should also aim for a truce that lasts beyond the holiday. (AP)
