ISTANBUL - The European Union has begun drafting new sanctions against Syria and has called on other nations to take similar steps to ramp up pressure on President Bashar Assad to comply with a UN/Arab League peace plan, British Foreign Secretary William Hague said on Thursday.

Hague echoed fears voiced by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that the 14-month-old uprising in Syria was becoming more sectarian and escalating to a point where it was in danger of spilling over into neighboring countries.

Syria is moving towards "all-out civil war or a state of collapse", Hague told Reuters in Istanbul, where he and Ban were attending a conference on Somalia.
