Kerry urges Arab states to not fund Sunni fighters
US Secretary of State John Kerry is discouraging Arab nations from sending financial support to even moderate opposition Sunni groups in Syria. He fears the aid could be used to help the growing insurgency in Iraq.


Kerry says he delivered that message to Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi during their meeting Sunday in Cairo. Kerry says he plans to make the same case to other leaders in Sunni-dominated Arab states over the next several days. (AP)
