Syrian opposition clamours for arms, cash

Syrian opposition clamours for arms, cash

The Syrian opposition urgently needs arms and at least $300mln to build a workable anti-Assad government.

Head of the National Opposition Coalition George Sabra has been speaking about this at a Paris conference convened by the French Foreign Ministry.

Delegates from 50 nations are taking part.

Many governments are reluctant to supply the Syrian rebels with arms, fearing it may find its way into the hands of Islamic radicals and give rise to another Libya.
