LONDON - Britain will seek next week to amend an arms embargo on Syria to make it easier to help opponents of Syrian President Bashar Assad, the Foreign Office said on Thursday.

A Foreign Office official said the increased "practical support" that Britain envisaged would be training and non-lethal equipment. Items such as body armor and night-vision goggles are currently caught up in a European arms embargo aimed at stemming supplies to Assad's forces.

European foreign ministers are meeting in Brussels on Monday.
