U.S.: New Syria Sanctions Coming

White House officials said that new sanctions are on the way for Syria as Secretary of State Hillary Clinton travels to neighboring Turkey this weekend. Anonymous senior officials traveling with Clinton as she comes off a tour of African countries said that the new putative measures could be coming any time now as conditions in the embattled country continue to deteriorate. On Friday, the British government offered further support for opposition fighters, pledging about $7.8 million to purchase medical supplies and communications gear for the rebels.
