WASHINGTON - The White House is considering a shift in policy toward the nearly two-year-long conflict in Syria, and may send the rebels body armor and armed vehicles, and possibly provide military training, the Washington Post reported on Tuesday, citing US and European officials.

US Secretary of State John Kerry was expected to discuss the proposed policy change with officials during his nine-nation tour of European and Arab capitals, the newspaper said. US officials remain opposed to sending weapons to the rebels, it said.

Kerry is to meet Syrian opposition leaders at a "Friends of Syria" conference in Rome on Thursday.
