Kerry, 10 other top envoys raise pressure on Syria
US Secretary of State John Kerry and top envoys from 10 other countries are raising the pressure on Syria's main opposition group to attend peace talks that would bring it face-to-face with the Syrian government.


The two-day meeting begins Sunday in Paris, just a week before the scheduled talks in Geneva.
