WASHINGTON - US Secretary of State John Kerry will make another effort to see if Russia is committed to finding a political solution to end the Syrian civil war when he visits Moscow this week, a US official said.

"We certainly want to try to make another stab at it, to make another effort at it, because events on the ground have become steadily worse," said the official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, adding that Kerry would meet Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday.

The official also told reporters that Washington had no information to suggest Syrian rebels had the capability or intention to use sarin after a UN official said human rights investigators have gathered testimony indicating rebel forces have used the nerve agent.
