DOHA - Syrian opposition leader Moaz Alkhatib said on Tuesday he had asked Washington to help protect northern areas, where rebels are in the ascendant, using Patriot surface-to-air missiles.

Speaking at an Arab summit in Qatar, Alkhatib added in a speech that the United States needed to play a bigger role in helping end the two-year-old conflict in his homeland. He said the Syrian government of President Bashar Assad had to bear responsibility for what he called its refusal to solve the crisis.
