Qatar FM calls on UN to back Syria no-fly zone

Qatar's foreign minister denies his country is supplying Syrian rebels with arms or funds to buy weapons, but says the United Nations should approve such support and consider creating a no-fly zone to protect civilians.


Khalid Bin Mohammad al-Attiyah said Friday during a visit to Tokyo that Qatar is providing rebels fighting Syrian President Bashar Assad with food and medicine, but the arms they need to fight Assad's well-equipped military would require UN approval and a no-fly or buffer zone. (AP)
