Arab League Delays Syria Talks

Foreign ministers from the Arab League have postponed a Sunday meeting to select a replacement for Kofi Annan, who resigned as special envoy to Syria earlier in August. U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who is on a trip to Turkey, said the two countries are working on plans for new ways to aid rebels in Syria, where fighting continues in the country’s major cities. Annan’s resignation came earlier this month after violence continued to worsen despite attempts to implement a six-point peace plan backed by the United Nations and the Arab League.
