Kerry seeking cease-fire, aid for Syria

US Secretary of State John Kerry is heading abroad to rally international support for ending the three-year civil war in Syria and help its victims. But the main opposition group that is seeking to oust Syrian President Bashar Assad still has not decided whether to attend a high-level meeting later this month to potentially start negotiating a cease-fire.


The US State Department said Wednesday that Kerry leaves on Saturday for Paris, where he will join foreign ministers from 11 nations working on a Syria proposal. (AP)
