UN Council to meet on Syria

The United Nations Security Council is meeting Wednesday to discuss the situation in Syria, a week after issuing a strong statement condemning the government crackdown on opposition protesters and calling for the violence to stop.

Wednesday's talks come after several Arab nations condemned the violence, possibly creating a new opening for council action.

Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and Bahrain have recalled their ambassadors from Syria, while Turkey's Foreign Minister Ahmet Davutoglu met with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in Damascus Tuesday to call for an end to the bloodshed.
