BEIRUT - Syria's political opposition has postponed a meeting scheduled for Saturday in Istanbul to choose a prime minister to head a provisional government, Mohammad Sarmini of the Syrian National Council said on Thursday.

"The meeting may be held later in the week," he told Reuters by telephone. Opposition leaders had hoped to elect a prime minister to operate in rebel-controlled areas of Syria, threatened by a slide into chaos.
