PARIS - US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday that the Syrian opposition needed more help in its struggle against President Bashar Assad, but did not say whether Washington planned additional aid.

"He needs to know he cannot shoot his way out of this so we need to convince him of that and I think the opposition needs more help in order to be able to do that. And we are working together to have a united position in respect to that," Kerry said in Paris ahead of a meeting in Rome on the crisis.
