The US Secretary of State John Kerry has said the opposition in Syria needs more help in its struggle to overthrow the regime of President Bashar al-Assad. He was speaking in Paris on the latest leg of his European tour.

Kerry said the US is hoping to find ways to speed up a transition of power in Syria, and that might demand changing what he called 'Assad's calculations.'
