PARIS - France is considering providing communications equipment to Syrian rebels to encourage a "stronger revolt" against President Bashar Assad's government as major powers look for an alternative to a UN peace plan, its foreign minister said on Friday.

Laurent Fabius said France fully supported Arab League-UN special envoy Kofi Annan's peace plan but that it was also looking at other options."There is Annan's effort but we are also considering - and the Americans have done this - not giving weapons but providing communications equipment so that a stronger revolt develops amongst the population," Fabius told France Inter radio.
