WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry said on Wednesday that the United States was "committed to" taking in more of the Syrian refugees fleeing war in their country.

Kerry spoke to reporters after meetings with lawmakers on Capitol Hill, including one that addressed the migrant crisis in Europe. He did not elaborate on how many would be accepted or when.

Since the start of the civil war in Syria, the United States has taken in about 1,500 refugees, with 300 more expected to clear by October, the State Department has said.
